Lawyer predicts Nogales mayor’s case will proceed to trial

The attorney for Nogales’ embattled mayor believes a corruption case will proceed to trial without delay.

Defense attorney Christopher Scileppi says a parallel case involving Mayor Octavio Garcia-Von Borstel and his father will take longer to develop.

Scileppi spoke to the Nogales International Friday outside a Tucson courthouse following a case management hearing.

An indictment against the mayor accuses him of five felony counts, including bribery, conflict of interest, money laundering and illegally conducting an enterprise.

A separate indictment by the state accuses Garcia Von Borstel and Octavio Garcia Suarez of one count each of fraud, theft, money laundering and illegally conducting an enterprise.
