Former JP Sues Hidalgo County over Back Pay
EDINBURG – A former Hidalgo County Justice of the Peace is suing the county and asking for thousands of dollars in back pay.
Former Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Mary Alice Palacios was suspended without pay in 2011 after she was convicted of two counts of abuse of official capacity but was later acquitted.
Palacios is now suing the county to pay her back her salary from the time she was suspended until the time her term would have ended in 2014.
It’s unclear how much money that would be.
