EL PASO - More guilty pleas have been entered in the ongoing El Paso County federal corruption investigation.

Adrian Edward Pena, 36, admitted to bribing an El Paso County Commissioner and an EPISD board member.

The U.S. Attorney says back in 2003, Pena paid $10,000 to a sitting County Commissioner in return for a vote to award a construction contract to Pena's employer.

Pena also conspired to pay a $13,000 bribe to an EPISD trustee for lucrative contracts.

Pena faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced on April 20.

No outrage from Caballero and Leeds? Are the guilty their political friends, as usual when real corruption is uncovered in El Paso?

I WONDER WHO THE EPISD UNTRUSTEE IS??? MORE LOSERS TIED IN WITH THE EPISD. GET RID OF THE HEAD LOSER OF THE DISTRICT. THAT IS WHY THE COMMUNITY HAS NO TRUST WITH THE EPISD AND WHY THE BOND ISSUE DIDN'T PASS. CROOKS EVERYWHERE FROM WITHIN.

who is the comissioner and the trustee?
