This afternoon allegations surfaced against former Sheriff Guadalupe Treviño, in a civil suit filed in state court.
Robert Caples, former hidalgo county sheriff candidate, is suing Treviño, for accepting campaign contributions from convicted drug trafficker Tomas ‘El Gallo’ Gonzalez.

Attorney Javier Peña tells fox 2 news, that although the deposition was cancelled, he was satisfied with the information they were able to obtain to forward with the civil suit.
