Former Willacy DA walked from Raymondville to Edinburg

Former Willacy County District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra walked from Raymondville to Edinburg to file an appeal with the Texas 13th Court of Appeals.

Guerra left office earlier this month but told Action 4 News on Tuesday that he still wants former Vice President Dick Cheney and others to be prosecuted for their roles in alleged prison abuse.

A Willacy County grand jury indicted Cheney, former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Texas State Senator Eddie Lucio, Jr. (D-Brownsville) and other for abuse of public office and other charges.

Their cases were thrown out of court but Guerra told Action 4 News that he wants Cheney and the others to be held accountable for the death of a Willacy County inmate and the abuse of several others.

Guerra walked from Raymondville to neighboring Hidalgo County to file his appeal at the court's Edinburg office.
