Bexar County Judicial Corruption; Deputy US Marshal Busted in San Antonio; Army Sex Assault Prosecutor Suspended

from San Antonio Express News
SAN ANTONIO — A lawyer at the center of a federal investigation into corruption at the Bexar County Courthouse and beyond has been charged with bribery, and plans to plead guilty to the charge, the San Antonio Express-News has confirmed as part of its own probe into the case. As the state's attention was on the primaries this week, federal authorities quietly filed documents here charging defense attorney Al Acevedo Jr. with bribing then-144th District Judge Angus McGinty, who resigned Feb. 14 amid allegations that he manipulated cases to benefit clients of Acevedo in exchange for repair work on McGinty's personal vehicles.

Men sought in attempted Alamo Heights kidnapping
From SA-Express
Crime Stoppers and the Alamo Heights Police Department are looking for two men who they said tried to kidnap a woman, 26, last month as she walked her dog.

The woman was walking the dog about 9 p.m. Feb. 5 in the 300 block of Kampmann Avenue when two Hispanic men approached in a dark pickup, according to Crime Stoppers. The passenger got out and grabbed the woman from behind, trying to force her into the pickup.

The woman kicked and screamed until the thug let her go, but it could have gone the other way.

This is a good example of why I advocate women becoming proficient in handling firearms and getting their CHL.
