CAMERON COUNTY (KFXV) — A judge permits a change of venue outside of the Rio Grande Valley in the case against tax assessor, Tony Yzaguirre. The defense cited –the reason the change of venue was needed was because there has been too much media coverage of the case.

Yzaguirre and some of his staff were arrested after a two year investigation. Yzaguirre faces ten charges of bribery against him, 11 charges of abuse of his official position and an additional charge of participating in organized crime.
