Dolores and Sonny , those are not the Dolores and Sonny I know. the punishments are too harsh. Had their names been Johnson and White they would have only got probation. This is a slap in the face to the Hispanic community.

She tried to slough it off as a "lapse of judgement."

Here's her problem:

She was reared in El Paso, an incubator of criminal psychopaths who wind up in public office. These corrupt thieves still try to palm thmeselves off as respectable people.

Two crooks down and many thousand to go in El Paso.

The judge absolutly did the right thing. If anything it was not hard enough but not a hand slap like the local judges would do.

Thank God the Feds handled this.

If I were an FBI agent investigating public corruption El Paso would be my choice for a target rich environment and job security.

New policy coming soon in EP.

You have to be a convicted felon to hold office.

Stealing from challenges kids and blaming it on cancer as a public official is about as low as it gets.

The folks of El Paso need to start filling civil suits against the like of Garcia (EPISD), and folks like this for stealing your tax dollars.

Take every nickel they have. They didn't think twice about taking yours under the blanket of taxes and using for themsleves.
