U.S. Corruption and Drug War: Gandara Moved to Federal Courthouse to Arrange for Release

KVIA El Paso: "El Paso Sheriffs deputies tell ABC-7 that Guillermo "Willie" Gandara Jr. was moved from the El Paso County Jail to the U.S. Federal Courthouse this morning where he is making arrangements to bond out of jail.

A federal judge on Monday set Gandara's bond at $50,000 cash bond. Gandara has been charged with federal drug trafficking charges and has been in jail since Thursday morning.

During Monday's hearing, prosecutors played video surveillance evidence they said shows Gandara and Juan Canales engaged in illegal activity. Canales was released early Wednesday morning on a $20,000 cash bond.

Gandara is expected to officially resign his seat on Commissioners Court on Wednesday, according to County Judge Veronica Escobar." read more
