EXCERPT FROM TODAY’S ISSUE OF THE BROWNSVILLE HERALD:
Prosecutors have also alleged Olivarez made cash payments totaling $2,600 to former board member De Leon and paid $4,000 for entertainment at a reception honoring one of current trustee Navarro’s relatives.
Thursday, however, Olivarez denied some of those allegations.
“I plead guilty even though some of the things in (the indictment) are not true,” he said.
Editor’s Note: Pleading half guilty? How will this affect upcoming sentencing in December?
