A local judge has pleaded guilty to extortion.

Ricardo Rangel, longstanding Webb County Precinct 2, Place 2 justice of the peace, pleaded guilty to the charge Thursday afternoon in a Laredo federal court.

Court records state Rangel, 48, accepted cash from a bail bondsman in exchange for granting a $1,000 surety bail bond on a person who had been arrested on a DWI charge.
