Judge gives former county clerk $1 million bond Judge gives former county clerk $1 million bond: "Guerrero was expected to remain in the Hidalgo County Jail through the weekend because the court won't be able to deal with a mix-up regarding the bond request until Monday, his lawyer said.

The judge granted bond on only one of two charges against Guerrero stemming from an alleged sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl. Defense lawyer Al Alvarez said Guerrero's lawyers accidentally left one of the charges off paperwork they submitted to the court requesting bond.

Guerrero was granted bond on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a minor. The bond does not apply to a charge of retaliation.

'We all knew what we were talking about at the hearing,' Alvarez said in a story in Friday's McAllen Monitor. 'We just forgot to put it down on paper.'

Sheriff Lupe Trevino said Guerrero would not be released until the matter is resolved.

'I am not going to let him out until they get me the paperwork,' Trevino said."
