He’s charged with 23 counts of bribery, abuse of official capacity, engaging in organized crime and now he’s getting a change of venue.
Tony Yzaguirre’s trial will be in Nueces County late January of next year. The change of venue comes after Yzaguirre’s successfully argued he could not receive a fair trial in Cameron County. The Cameron County Tax Assessor-Collector was arrested in January of 2015.
Multiple agencies raided his office after a two year investigation called “Operation Dirty Deeds.”
Three others were arrested and accused of taking bribes but have since had their charges dropped.
