HANDS DOWN: GILMAN D.A. OFFICE EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH

(Ed/'s Note: He turned in a sterling performance when a Corpus Christi jury acquitted Cameron County Tax Assessor-Collector on 23 counts, distinguished himself before the bar when he botched the Marco Antonio Gonzalez case, first with a mistrial, then with acquittals on capital murder and homicide charges.

Then, when he had a slam-dunk case on nine aggravated assault charges against him for shooting it out with the cops at a six-hour standoff, he managed to yank a defeat from the jaws of victory and botched the jury charge that resulted in Gonzalez receiving five years, and will probably be free soon because it included time served.

For that, and for many more reasons, Asst. D.A. Peter Gilman won the Cameron County District Attorney's Office Employee of the Month Award. Competition was fierce, with Asst. D.A. Gus Garza coming in a close second. Congrats, Pete!)

Gilman is incompetent and we should ask why Luis Saenz hired him and allowed this asshole to prosecute these big cases.

Was it him or the investigators that handed him the case who are responsible?

The investigation into the tax office was botched from the beginning. Starting with the reason the investigation was brought forth, not to mention the sloppy ass investigator Olivares that did not know the laws pertaining to dealer transfers. Luis's theories and mere speculations were not enough to find in of the several tax office employees that were arrested GUILTY. DPS Trooper Olivares, Luis Saenz, ADA Peter Gilman, and the slew of other agencies involved should have some form of repercussions taken against them for the hell they put these families through and the overwhelming amount of money blown on this case. Keep your political agendas out of the courthouse Mr. DA
You and the other incompetent individuals who participated should publicly apologize for your major SCREW UP!!

To the 3:57 PM Comment!!!!
Obviously you don’t know Mr. Gilman. He is respected among many including myself. He is the definition of the meaning of humble. I have not only had the pleasure of working with him but also have worked on the other side against him when he was a defense attorney. He has always been professional and true to his word.
To be honest the case was rushed and he was handed the case to present it. It is not his fault, he was just doing what he was instructed to do.
Gilman is a great man and doesnt deserve the BS.......
