Donato was being held at the Atascosa County Jail on $200,000 bond Tuesday, officials said.
For most of the past year, while trying to take back his guilty plea on indecency with a child charges last October, he has fought attempts to force him to step down as mayor. City officials who have called the tug of war demoralizing didn't want to talk about the latest indictments.
This month Peña asked the Texas Rangers to investigate Donato, but neither party would say why.
“People from other places will ask if the child molester is still mayor. It's embarrassing, but we just say, ‘Who cares?'” Lopez said. “A lot of people aren't going to say they approve (of him) but nobody is going to back him up.”
