A Texas judge and Democrat was arrested and charged with taking bribes in exchange for giving favorable rulings in his courtroom for more than a decade.
On Monday, 93rd State District Judge RodolfoDelgado posted bond on charges asserting he abused his power and office to personally enrich himself with bribes dating back as far as 2008.
Federal authorities arrested Delgado on Friday and raided his home and office. He posted a $100,000 bond on Monday after filing for an appeal, claiming he didn't accept any bribes in exchange for favorable rulings.
His criminal complaint was unsealed Monday, which details that he is accused of accepting three bribes from November 2016 to January 2018.
He denies it, but the case it pretty clear. Federal agents have been investigating Delgado since November 2016 when prosecutors set-up a sting operation with another undercover lawyer to bribe Delgado at least twice.
The FBI used the lawyer turned informant to build the entire case against Delgado,which featured phone recordings, meetings, and documentation showing he accepted bribes from the lawyer in return for favorable rulings in his courtroom.
