State Senator Carlos Uresti will appear in federal court today for a jury trial on charges of money laundering and fraud. Uresti pled not guilty last year to his involvement with a fracking sand company.
A jury was seated last week.
If convicted, Uresti could face up to 20 years in prison for each of the 11 counts. Uresti represents State Senate District 19 which includes parts of San Antonio and Bexar County.
