El Paso District Court Judge Manuel Barraza will do 5 years for bribery


An El Paso District Court judge gets to bend over for bill for the next five years.  That is what happens when one corrupts justice for one’s own benefit.  Bad boy Barraza was convicted of two counts of wire fraud and the deprivation of honest services and one count of making false statements.

Barraza used his power to extort sexual favors out of a criminal defendant.  He convinced her to make him a happy camper.  In exchange, he was to use his influence in a criminal matter she faced in another court.  Barraza missed one small detail.  One of the women he was extorting was an undercover agent for the FBI!

Rich guys use their power and money to extort sexual favors out of supposed adoring women.  District court judges have similar power but these powers are to be guarded.  Ex-judge Barraza made a mockery out of every honest judge who works endless hours to get it right.   He didn’t waste time doing it.  He was only on the bench for three months! 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Laura Franco Gregory and Antonio Franco.
