Today, our office secured a conviction in the case against Michelle Barrientes Vela. This was a case about public corruption and today's verdict reinforces the fact that no one is above the law. We would like to thank the jury and state's witnesses for their time over the past two weeks and we would also like to give a special shout out to the prosecution team. ADAs Dawn McGraw and Oscar Salinas, Sgt. Investigator Kenneth Tollett, and Victim Advocate Angela Trevino went above and beyond in their public service to ensure that our community is safe.
