|Final sentencing date set for PSJA ISD scandal by Sergio Chapa|
A ‘final’ sentencing date has been set for all six people remaining in the PSJA Independent School District bribery scandal.
Rogelio “Roy” Rodriguez, Arturo Guajardo, Raul “Roy” Navarro, Evaneglina “Vangie” De Leon, George Alonzo Hernandez and Arnulfo Cuahtemoc Olivarez are all scheduled to appear in federal court together.
The case was originally filed back in May 2007 but one-by-one, each of the six pleaded guilty to their roles in the case between December 2007 and December 2009.
Their sentencing have been postponed numerous times with prosecutors dismissing charges against a seventh suspect Ricardo De Leon back in January 2008.
Rodriguez and the other five remaining suspects are now set to appear for sentencing before U.S. District Court Judge Ricardo Hinojosa in McAllen at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, August 27th.
Each of them faces different prison terms ranging from five to 20 years in prison.
Editor’s Note: Scamming taxpayers for millions of dollars deserves public retribution. Flogging in the Town Square seems appropriate, or a Tar & Feather Party at the McAllen Convention Center would be a good start. Maybe even losing one’s insurance license would be something to consider. Regarding the later, why are insurance carriers still recognizing and paying an admitted felon?………….. are his patented sales tactic of bribing public officials for lucrative insurance contracts contained in a subchapter in the carrier’s Ethics Manual?
