The Administrator for several Emergency Services Districts admitted to a scheme that defrauded Bexar County taxpayers of thousands of dollars.
Gil Muniz Perez, 62, pled guilty to theft by public servant $30,000-$150,000 – a second degree felony. Judge Stephanie Boyd, 187th Judicial District Court, sentenced Gil Perez to 10 years’ probation. Perez will be required to pay $149,769.99 in restitution as a condition of his probation.
In addition to his role as the Administrator for several ESDs, Perez was President of at least one ESD. Perez abused his positions by misapplying and misusing government funds entrusted to him by the ESDs, the County Commissioners, and the taxpayers of Bexar County. Perez devised a variety of overpayment schemes in the form of reimbursement and payment irregularities, to include duplicate payments, fictitious and disallowable expenditures, credit card payments for personal use, and other unauthorized purchases and expenses.
The Texas Rangers investigated Perez with the assistance of the Bexar County Auditor’s Office and the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office.
