Rudy Delgado, the Texas judge who was convicted in a bribery scandal July 11, has asked the court to acquit him regardless of the jury’s guilty verdict.
Delgado, former judge of Hidalgo County’s 93rd District Court, took bribes from Edinburg solo practitioner Noe Perez in exchange for favorable rulings in criminal cases like granting personal bonds, dismissing charges and dismissing cases. A jury in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas in McAllen found him guilty of obstruction of justice, three counts of federal program bribery, three counts of Travel Act violations and conspiracy to commit bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds.
