Former Texas sheriff pleads guilty in drug case

McALLEN, Texas — A former south Texas sheriff has pleaded guilty to a federal drug trafficking charge for sharing law enforcement information with a Mexican drug ring.

Former Starr County Sheriff Reymundo Guerra entered his plea Friday. He could face as much as life in prison, though that appears unlikely because he reached a plea agreement.

Sentencing is scheduled for July.

Federal prosecutors said Guerra helped the Mexican Gulf Cartel to operate in his county and endangered fellow law enforcement agents by sharing names of confidential informants.
