SAN ANTONIO- A San Antonio lawyer has pleaded guilty to bribing a state district judge in exchange for favorable rulings.
Alberto Acevedo Jr. appeared in court Monday and has admitted he was caught in an FBI investigation into suspected corruption at the Bexar County courthouse.
Federal prosecutors say in a court filing that Acevedo last year bribed Judge Angus McGinty, who resigned in February. They say Acevedo gave gifts and payments totaling more than $6,600 to McGinty in order to secure rulings favoring Acevedo's clients. Acevedo also promised to take care of car repairs the judge needed.
McGinty has not been charged with a crime.
