BUT HE TOLD ME HE WAS "COMPLETELY INNOCENT"
Manny Aragon, former state Senate president pro-tem and Majority Leader, pleaded guilty this morning to three federal felony counts of conspiracy and mail fraud in the Metropolitan Courthouse scandal.
According to his plea agreement, he'll serve 5 and a half years in federal prison.

According to one AP account Aragon told reporters outside the federal courthouse today “It wasn’t a very happy day for me,” and said he was eager “to put this behind us and move forward.”
But just a year ago, I covered his arraignment, after which he told reporters, "Those of you who were in the courtroom know that I have pleaded not guilty. I have only one further statement. I am completely innocent."
I wonder if this means the National Hispanic Culture Center will change the name of this tower?
