Three people from Robstown have been indicted on voter fraud charges connected to 2016 elections, according to a news release from the Texas Attorney General's Office.  

A San Patricio Grand Jury has indicted the following:

Robert J. Gonzalez, 46, three counts of unlawfully divulging a vote, a third-degree felony. Gonzalez was on the ballot as a candidate for the 2016 Robstown Municipal Utility Board runoff election. He was charged with observing the secret ballot of another voter in a polling place and unlawfully divulging the person's vote, according to the news release. Gonzalez was the subject of a 6 Investigates story last year.

Cynthia K. Gonzalez, 56, on four counts of election fraud stemming from the May 2016 Nueces County Democratic primary runoff election.

Rosita Torres Flores, 76, on two counts of voter fraud. She's accused of obtaining an elderly victim's mail-in ballot and using it to vote without the voter's direction during the 2016 general election, according to the news release. 

The San Patricio Grand Jury handed down those indictments, which are for violations of the Texas Election Code. The Texas Attorney General's office will prosecute the cases.
