Fragozo faces 13 felonies linked to allegations that he lied about his home address to get elected.
"He’s very disappointed that the public’s money is being spent on this kind of an investigation," said Victor Torres, Fragozo's attorney.
Both sides have until next week to come to an agreement on whether or not to go to trial. A preliminary hearing is set for March 23.
The District Attorney's Office claims the 50-year-old changed his voter registration address to an apartment in District 1 just days before filing his nomination. The state says Fragozo used the address for election eligibility while still living at his house in District 5.
"He needs to be living in a residence that allows him to represent the district that he currently represents," said District Attorney Representative Leon Schoor. "The charges represent that the people don’t believe that that is his domicile."
If convicted of all charges, Fragozo could spend more than 9 years behind bars.
