Description

Hector San Miguel, the city editor at American Press, received a tip that State District Judge Wilford Carter was building residential subdivisions without required permits, even though the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the State Licensing Board of Contractors warned him not to do so. Carter continued building subdivisions on top of a restricted wetlands area without getting the required permits first and hid his wrongdoing's from the City Council and local zoning board. When owners of some of the lots came forward to be reimbursed, Carter refused to give them their money.
