EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Two former top El Paso County officials and an El Paso businessman have pleaded guilty to public corruption charges.
The El Paso Times (http://bit.ly/MzWwMP) reports former county judge Luther Jones and former county commissioner Larry Medina entered their pleas Wednesday in federal court in El Paso. Former Access HealthSource president Frank Apodaca also pleaded guilty.
They and eight others were indicted in 2010 on charges that they corruptly steered more than $100 million in government health insurance business to Access.
Jones already is serving a six-year prison sentence for another facet of the overall El Paso corruption scandal.
