Villalobos Federal Case Assigned to U.S. Attorneys in the Western District of Texas
CAMERON COUNTY — The U.S. Attorneys Office for the Southern District in Texas will not be taking part in the federal case against Cameron county District Attorney Armando Villalobos because of a conflict of interest. The decision was made by U.S. Associate Deputy Attorney General David Margolis who has assigned the case to the U.S. Attorneys in the Western District of Texas. A grand jury indicted Villalobos last week on racketeering charges in the former 404th District Judge Abel Limas case. Villalobos and his former law partner Eddie Lucio, of Austin, Texas, have pleaded not guilty to all charges.
