The first witnesses took the stand today in the voter fraud trial of  Robstown Utility Board trustee Robert Gonzalez.

6 Investigates first reported this case in 2017.

Gonzalez is accused of having knowledge of how someone voted in a December 2016 election, then sharing that information with someone else.

Under state law, that’s a felony and Gonzalez could receive up to 10 years in prison if he’s convicted.

Two other people charged in connection with this voter fraud case have pleaded guilty.
