STATE DROPS SEVEN MORE CHARGES AGAINST YZAGUIRRE


From News 5
BROWNSVILLE – Seven charges against the Cameron County tax-assessor collector on trial were dropped Monday morning.

Tony Yzaguirre Jr. won’t be facing two charges for bribery and five charges for abuse of official capacity.

Mel Sosa, the man who allegedly was paying Yzaguirre bribes for illegal car title transfers, took the stand in the morning.

He testified he’d put $100 for each title in an envelope and leave it on Yzaguirre’s desk. He also said he never saw Yzaguirre take the envelope.

Sosa told jurors he struck a deal with DPS investigators. He went undercover and wore recording devices during his meetings with Yzaguirre.

The tax-assessor collector still faces 15 charges. He is now charged with eight counts of bribery, six counts of abuse of official capacity, and one count of official oppression.

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman!!

Shame on you Team Saenz Head Cheerleader Mario Saenz !!!!! Shame on you for taking advantage of a weak minded person like Rigo Bocanegra and convincing him that he has a shot at winning a Cameron County election . Shame on you Mario for lying to this unqualified and unelectable candidate . Rigo is nothing more than a political puppet for Mario to use for settling vendettas for TEAM SAENZ . Shame on you Mario !!!! Rigo Bocanegra unqualified , unelectable , political puppet 2018 !!

Yzaguirre is innocent ! Plain and simple you can see that this fiasco was nothing more than a political manuever. LUIS was running scared in his re-election for DA against Carlos Masso and the raid helped Luis politically. As far as I can see the states star witness is nothing more than a liar trying to save his own ass !! Sosa will say and do anything to avoid going back to Mexico to face drug trafficking charges..... Yzaguirre should walk on all charges and his employees should be reinstated. In a good just world the DA would face repercussions for what he did to Yzaguirre and the others that were wrongfully arrested and humiliated.

Some big dogs need to come in and investigate all this stuff the DA is doing. Abuse of office comes to mind among other things.
