Opening statements are expected tomorrow in a Nueces County Courtroom as the Cameron County Tax Assessor faces a jury.
Jury selection got underway today in Corpus Christi in Tony Yzaguirre’s case. The case was moved because of media publicity here in the valley.
Yzaguirre is charged with 11 counts of abuse of official capacity, 10 counts of bribery and one count of official oppression.
If found guilty, he faces up to 20 years in a state prison. The trial is expected to last two weeks.
