A La Joya school trustee may be heading to prison after admitting to taking almost $235,000 in bribes.

42-year-old Armin Garza pleaded guilty in McAllen federal court Thursday to a charge of defrauding the U.S. government.

Garza resigned his La Joya school board post following his guilty plea. He’ll learn his sentence March 18th.
