Former Cameron County Judge Out On Bond, Still Employed with the County?

Local News

A former Cameron County Judge is in trouble with the law. Pete Sepulveda turns himself in, pays off his bond, and now we’re left wondering what it means to be the Executive Director for the Cameron County Regional Mobility Authority.

After former county judge Pete Sepulveda is formally indicted, we visited the Cameron County Regional Mobility Authority to see if he’s back to work.

It is unclear as to whether Pete Sepulveda will continue to serve as Executive Director for the CCRMA.

The former judge was charged with Abuse of Official Capacity, among other charges after an investigation led by the district attorney’s office back in March led to the discovery that county workers had paved a private road.

The findings were presented to a Grand Jury in late December. Those indictments were now unsealed with arrest warrants. Sepulveda turned himself in to the Cameron County Sheriff’s Office for processing.

The question was asked if Mr. Sepulveda was still working here? The staff could not comment on this matter.

The bonds Sepulveda paid for release were $5,000 on each of the three charges. A total of $15,000.

Just a couple of hours before the show, the CCRMA released a statement. It reads…

“There is no immediate changes for Mr. Sepulveda as CCRMA Executive Director at this time. The board will be meeting next week to discuss the matter further.”
