A graduate of Stanford Law School has been federally indicted for allegedly bribing a former Texas district court judge.
Limas pleaded guilty earlier this year in a federal racketeering case in which he was accused of operating his courtroom as an income-producing enterprise. He has not yet been sentenced.
Marchan allegedly paid Limas $5,000 to dismiss another attorney's motion for sanctions and twice allegedly gave the judge money in order to be appointed as an attorney ad litem in civil matters.
He pleaded not guilty today in federal court in Brownsville and was given a $100,000 unsecured bond.
