Willacy County sues companies involved in prison project

RAYMONDVILLE, TX (AP)- Willacy County has filed a lawsuit against two companies involved in a $14-point-5 (M) million federal prison project that became entwined in a bribery scheme.
The civil lawsuit was filed last week in state district court against Corplan Corrections of Argyle and Hale Mills Incorporated of Houston. The suit claims the companies conspired to bribe county commissioners to select them for the construction project.

Although the lawsuit does not specify damages, District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra said the financially troubled county could get title to the prison.
