Skip to comments.[South Texas:]Former county employee to spend jail time for corruption

A former Cameron County employee has been sentenced to jail time after he abused official capacity and tampered with government records.
Raul Salazar was found guilty of the charges last month, and he was sentenced to 10 months in jail today.
He was an administrative assistant to Cameron County Commissioner Ernie Hernandez.
Salazar helped Hernandez's brother-in-law, Roberto Cadriel, by providing him the answers to an exam.
Cadriel memorized the answers to the exam, passed, and was hired as a security guard.
"Public corruption is public enemy number one in Cameron County," District Attorney Luis V. Saenz said in a statement.
Salazar resigned from his county position after being convicted of abuse of official capacity and tampering with government records.
Are they suggesting the County Commissioner had nothing to do with this?
