Tenth person charged in Maverick corruption
By John MacCormack - Express-News
A tenth person has been charged in an ongoing federal and state probe of public corruption in Maverick County that has already claimed seven county employees.\
Javier Gonzalez, a county probation officer and general contractor, was arrested Wednesday after a federal grand jury in Del Rio indicted him for his role in a bribery, kickback and bid-rigging scheme, according to federal officials.
