McALLEN, Texas –A former Weslaco city commissioner and economic development corporation board member has admitted he lied under oath, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan Patrick.

 

David Fox, 50, Weslaco, pleaded guilty today.

 

During a grand jury proceeding Nov. 20, 2018, Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) Roberto Lopez Jr. asked Fox if he had received any money or any benefit from any individual or entity in connection with casting a vote as a member of the Weslaco City Commission. He responded “no.”

 

Later, he admitted he had received at least $2,000 in bribes. He believed the money was intended to influence his votes as a commissioner relating to the Weslaco water and wastewater treatment plants and facilities. 

 

Fox served in this role from approximately December 2012 through November 2015. During portions of this time, Fox also served as a board member for the Weslaco Economic Development Corporation.

 

U.S. District Judge Micaela Alvarez accepted the plea today and set sentencing for Jan. 9, 2020, at which time Fox faces up to five years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 fine. 

 

He was permitted to remain on bond pending that hearing.

 

The FBI and IRS – Criminal Investigation conducted the investigation. AUSA Lopez is prosecuting the case.
