Jesse Gandara Jr. to face jury trial for animal cruelty charge

Friday, May 17, 2013 - 7:41pm

Former Socorro City Councilman Jesse Gandara Jr. will face a jury trial for animal cruelty charges.

Gandara was arrested in April after El Paso County Sheriff's deputies searched his home and found dead chickens and a flea-infested dog.

Gandara was charged with animal cruelty. A judge granted a jury trial, but a trial date has not been set.

Gandara was previously arrested in March for felony theft.  A trial on that charge is scheduled for October.
