El Paso Attorney – Raymond Telles – Guilty of Fraud!

Some things in life are obvious – one such thing is don’t bribe elected officials. Apparently Mr. Telles was absent from class in law school the day that was taught. On March 14, 2008 Raymond Telles, age 51, former city representative and unsuccessful mayoral candidate plead guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud, and deprivation of honest services – all of the above is basically – bribery.

Telles admitted to conspiring with others to devise a scheme to defraud the Socorro Independent School District (SISD) and the citizens of El Paso living in the SISD of the right to honest services of elected SISD Trustees in the affairs of the SISD. It further alleges that the defendant attempted to bribe the elected Trustees of SISD, in exchange
for their support and vote in their official capacity as SISD Trustees, in violation of their fiduciary duty as elected SISD Trustees, for agreements between SISD and vendors seeking business with the SISD.

Telles also admitted to conspiring with others to devise a scheme to defraud the County of El Paso and the citizens of the County of El Paso of the right to the honest services of elected members of the El Paso County Commissioner’s Court, in the affairs of El Paso County by also attempting to bribe members of the El Paso County Commissioner’s Court for their support and vote in their official capacity as members of the El Paso County Commissioner’s Court.

Every choice has a consequence. As a white collar crime and business ethics speaker, I speak from first hand experience about the truth about consequences. Reality is – no one escapes the consequences of their choices. While Telles might have thought that he could unrightly influence outcomes, there is one fact. You do reap what you sow.
