YZAGUIRRE NOT GUILTY: JURY REJECTS LUIS V. SAENZ

By Juan Montoya
In the end, the jury did not buy it.
Image result for tony yzaguirreThey saw it for what it was and rejected the prosecution of Cameron County tax Assessor-Collector Tony Yzaguirre by District Attorney Luis V. Saenz.

The year-long prosecution – a majority of the jury decided – amounted to  nothing more than a vindictive reelection stunt by the highest law enforcement official in the county.

The Nueces County jury found Yzaguirre not guilty of all charges filed against him including bribery.

This morning –  after deliberating for the past two days – they cleared him of all charges.

He had been indicted and charged with eight counts of bribery, six counts of abuse of official capacity and one count of official oppression.

The senator and the state reps make money make money and forget us the
poor voter. Stop the high bills from PUB Stop the high bills from PUB

Guilty Luis Saenz ¡¡,,

Masso was right! From the very beginning he said that Saenz had jumped the gun. He had four years to conduct an investigation but waited until he was in the middle of a heavily contested race for the district attorney position to announce the investigation and charges. They made a big show of it by requesting the assistance of other agencies including the FBI and DEA. He had press conferences and said how he was coming after political corruption. This is what pushed him over the top and why Masso lost.

So the end result of the investigation and prosecution, all charges dismissed against the employees, 8 counts dismissed against Yzaguirre and then Yzaguirre found not guilty on the rest of the counts. Thousands of dollars spent. What a waste of taxpayer money!

Political....you think?

The DA is watching to many Law and Order reruns. He charges people with weak and flimsy evidence and the jury see through the smoke. Cameron County just spent a wad of cash on the bogus prosecution.

He is your DA and he is spending your tax dollars.

IT'S TIME TO PUT HIM BACK TO WORK AT THE TAX OFFICE AND RESTORE HIS POWERS AS COUNTY TAX ACCESSOR!!! IT'S TIME TO RE-INSTATE ALL THE PEACE OFFICERS THAT WERE INVESTIGATORS WORKING IN HIS OFFICE AT THE TIME OF THE BAD YES BAD PROBABLE CAUSE WARRANTS!!!

IT'S TIME TO REPLACE THE DA, HIS ADAs' AND HIS LOSER INVESTIGATORS WITH MUCH BETTER EDUCATED AND COMPETENT PEOPLE!!!

IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE IN THE DA's OFFICE...ELECTIONS ARE JUST AROUND THE CORNER AGAIN!!! COME ON PEOPLE IT'S TIME....

Glad to see that Mr. Yzaguirre was found Not guilty! Sloppy case from the beginning. The investigator from DPS is an amateur and conducted a sloppy investigation. He needs to have his peace officers' license removed or a complaint filed against him with the state. Peter Gilman needs to realize he has no skill as a prosecutor. The best thing he does is DRINK.....He stays drunk quite a bit. I think the prosecutors in the DA's office need to learn to focus on actual criminal cases.Use their time and money to put way real criminals.

He is guilty and todo she paga , he had good attorneys planting doubt pero you know tony you know enjoy while you can cuz it's coming

The shitty prosecutions continue at the DA's office! Saenz is an incompetent prosecutor/administrator. He couldn't convict Ahumada which should have been a slam dunk. His prosecutors screwed up yet again on the jury charge for that jailer guy that killed his co-worker and held exgirlfriend hostage. Border Patrol not guilty of murder. Yzaguirre not guilty of corruption and abuse of office. I bet Sepulveda gets a not guilty verdict!

My goodness you people have nothing better to do except spread lies. Leave this family alone! They have gone through enough....Just because you keep repeating lies will not make them true. I know you people that supported Luis are BUTT HURT but smearing others isn't going to make Tony guilty and it isn't going to make the DA's office look any better. Their track record speaks volumes. They just need to go back to trying to secure prosecutions against real criminals.
