Police officer under house arrest asks judge if he can drink alcohol
Sat, 05 Jan 2013 15:23:01 GMT —
Mission police officer Jonathan Trevio has been under home confinement under very strict conditions since posting bond back in December.
FBI agents arrested Trevio and three other members of the Panama Unit anti-drug task force officer in a sting operation.
Trevio is facing federal charges where he TMs accused of taking bribes to escort drug loads across the Rio Grande Valley.
In a motion filed just days ahead of New Year's Eve, Trevio asked for a federal judge TMs permission to drink alcohol.
Trevio, the son of Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevio, is out on a $100,000 dollars bond.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Dorina Ramos placed several restrictions on his release:
Home Confinement except for work and other exceptions Wearing a GPS device No traveling outside of South Texas without permission No travel to Mexico No contact with co-defendants or witnesses Medical and psychiatric treatment as directed by officials No firearms Random drug tests No alcohol
Trevio filed a motion asking Judge Ramos to change that condition to no excessive use of alcohol.
The Mission police officer claimed he has not exhibited an alcohol abuse problem.
Action 4 News obtained copies of urine analysis results from the Mission Police Department.
The results, dated January 2011, showed negative results for any signs of substance abuse.
Judge Ramos sat on the motion a couple days past New Year TMs Eve and issued an order denying his request.
Trevio's defense attorney Roberto Yzaguirre did not return calls for comment.
