SAN ANTONIO -- Nora Longoria, 13th Court of Appeals judge, showed an officer her badge and asked him to let her go home while being arrested over the weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Ex-judge pleads not guilty in bribery case
SAN ANTONIO — Former 144th District Judge Angus McGinty pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges that he took bribes from then-lawyer Al Acevedo in exchange for rigging cases.

McGinty has vowed to fight the FBI's allegations that he made changes to the cases of some of Acevedo's clients because Acevedo had served as McGinty's personal car service. Acevedo reportedly paid for repairs and other services to two of the then-judge's Mercedes-Benz cars.

LUBBOCK, Texas—An illegal immigrant who was released by U.S. authorities with a Notice to Appear has been arrested for the alleged murder of a woman and kidnapping of children on U.S. soil. The alleged crimes occurred after the man was released.
The AP identified the illegal alien as a “suburban New Orleans man” who faces a second-degree murder charge after his girlfriend was found bludgeoned to death in a bathtub in Louisiana. The man was arrested in a Katy, Texas trailer park with three children. It is unclear if they are his or if they are the same children he used to get U.S. authorities to release him with a Notice to Appear.
The AP did not inform their readers that the man was an illegal alien.

SAN ANTONIO — Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has hired a high-profile attorney and may have met Wednesday with an investigator looking into allegations of misconduct while Bergdahl was in Afghanistan.

Lawyer Eugene Fidell denounced leaks by government officials as “disturbing” and likened some of the accusations against his client to the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth campaign that damaged former Sen. John Kerry's presidential bid.

  1. If Judge Angus McGinty pleads out and receives probation and gets disbarred he can retire (provided he is eligible) with full benefits. Then he can reinvent himself as a mediator / arbitrator, advertise on Linkedin, and label himself a retired district judge. This way he is right back to profiting from the legal business, which he disgraced as a judge. He can also lead political movements condemning Obamacare while getting taxpayer funded health care, after stealing from and betraying same the people who fund is health insurance and pay his retirement. I cant imagine anyone being this big of a jerk / hypocrite, but he could do it.
