A Dona Ana County jury will find him innocent regardless of any and all evidence to the contrary,a Hispanic man of wealth,power,and influence will NEVER be convicted.

Yup!!! This man has so much power and money, basically he's untouchable. The jury selected can say no to a little little, you know. Money and power make the world go round..........

I know Horacio Favela personally and he is not a man of wealth or power and his only influence is to the people who's love and respect he has earned. Horacio has been a productive and caring resident of Sunland Park for many many years.

Horacio is a struggling American like the rest of us. He has serviced his community of Sunland Park since he was a teenager. He comes from a humble, hard working family and has always only had the best intrest of Sunland Park.

This acusations were made by the defeated candidate. This is a case of a sore looser getting our courts to waste money for her own personal reasons.

Hispanic yes....as for the rest what gave you that idea? If he had so much wealth, power and influence he never would have been charged.

Nah, he won't be charged, look at who his attorney is...Arrieta. If I were in deep dog doo doo, I would hire him.

Favela will not be charged, what is the big deal anyways? So, he's doing good for the community what difference where and what address he has?

Girl pay attention he was charged.... but I agree Arrieta is who I would pick too if I was charged or as you put it, "in deep dog doo doo" I have to ask, as someone else mentioned in another blog about this case, how come Erika Relatorre wasn't charged for living in EP and running in Sunland during the same election. She even admitted it and stepped down??

It does matter who the jury is or the judge, if you got the right attorney you'll be alright. Arrieta is an expert and he's got some serious skills. This attorney is got this one in his pocket. Just watch.......

Erika was elected by Ruben Segura and his councilwomen when Mrs. Monsivaiz resigned her position, and then Erika run to be reelected.It is true that she lived in El Paso before she was elected, during her service as a councilwoman, and after she was reelected.Unfortunately for Mr. Favela, he did not accept the Judge's position offered by Mr. Segura who was trying to bribe him to get him to support the Fuente's ticket. They should investigate where Mr. Fuentes really lives, he lives in Mesilla, where he is the City's clerk. These people are corrupt and are sore losers, but they have friends in higher places, they can break the law and the district attorney office would not do anything about it.Poor Erika was just another victim of the type of corruption that exists in our city.

This man doesn't have that much power nor that much money as you say. He is a leader in that community since the late 70's. He has done a lot for our youth, and through his business he supports the schools and the community. I believe he is a hard working,honest and spiritual person, not like the ones who accused him, just a bunch of corrupt and sorelosers.
