Tahoka School Board, and City Council member both plead guilty

Posted:

TAHOKA, TX (KCBD) - A former Tahoka School Board member will spend two years on probation after pleading guilty to running a gambling operation.

Joe Calvillo Jr., and his wife, Clara, were arrested two years ago. An undercover investigation found the Calvillos were running a gambling operation at their "Lucky 7's" Game Room.

 Originally they both faced felony charges but those were reduced to Class A misdemeanors.

 Clara served one day in jail and Joe will serve 24 months on probation with a fine.

Joe was on the Tahoka School Board for 15 years, and Clara on the Tahoka City Council for 12 years. Both decided to not seek re-election this month.
