(Updated) Nixon Mayor Hector Dominguez, in a statement this afternoon, said that although a Gonzales County grand jury has found “probable cause” of alleged misconduct by Nixon City Manager Manuel Zepeda, it does not mean that he is guilty of any crime.
Zepeda was arrested and booked Aug. 7 into the Gonzales County Jail, charged with coercion of a public servant, in connection with an incident in March in which he allegedly requested a law-enforcement officer not arrest a man.
The matter, Dominguez said, is a matter for a court of law to decide, not a court of public opinion.
Zepeda manages the city staff and operations.
