Texas A South Texas prosecutor who has tried to oust several county officials for alleged misconduct was himself arraigned Monday on corruption charges filed by a special prosecutor.
Willacy County District Attorney Juan Guerra blocked the door of his office and dared police to arrest him Sunday as they tried to serve a search warrant looking for evidence of abuse of office, theft and oppression.
On Monday, Guerra was charged with three counts of theft by a public servant and one count of interfering with the public duties of a peace officer.
Bail was set at $22,000, which Guerra's attorney, former Cameron County Judge Gilberto Hinojosa, said he expected to post. Guerra is expected to continue as county prosecutor while under investigation.
