Ex-DA testifies in own defense in bribery trial
May 23, 2013 03:35 GMT
BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) -- A former South Texas district attorney charged with helping a crooked judge has testified in his own defense.
Former Cameron County District Attorney Armando Villalobos (vee-yah-LOH'-bohs) was called to testify after federal prosecutors rested in his corruption trial. He told a federal jury in Brownsville that he didn't have the close relationship with Abel Limas that the former state district judge testified that they had.
Villalobos is the highest-profile target to stand trial in a FBI investigation into legal corruption involving Limas, who failed in his 2008 re-election bid. Limas has pleaded guilty to racketeering and awaits sentencing.
Villalobos is to continue his testimony Thursday.
