Breaking News: Harlingen city commissioner Kori Marra to get arraigned tomorrow

At 8AM at county court at law number 3. 

On two misdemeanor charges of failure to notify the city of Harlingen of conflict of interest. 

David Gonzales III is the presiding judge. 

Former district attorney Luis Saenz is the special prosecutor. 

Formal charges against Mara were filed recently. 

She has been out on a $1,000 PR bond. 

Here is the previous information:

The Cameron County DA’s office announced today that Harlingen city commissioner Kori Marra has been charged with two misdemeanor  counts, the first involves a conflict of interest, and the second is failure to file an affidavit when voting on a matter that benefits her personally.

Depending on the degree of the charge, a Class B carries a fine of up to $2,000 and up to 180 days in jail or probation, and a Class A carries a fine of up to $4,000 and up to 24 months in jail and or probation. 

The charges were filed by a special prosecutor and not the DA Armando Villalobos. Villalobos appointed a special prosecutor to handle this matter.  

The charges stem from a public complaint that alleged Kori should have abstained from voting on issues that benefited her. She shrugged off any suggestion she recuse herself and voted for the items. 

We are told that Korri may waive the arraignment and not show up.

We will provide more information as soon as soon as it becomes available.
