All 15 defendants have pleaded not guilty to various charges, ranging from extortion and conspiracy for some to bribery and the intentional filing of false documentation for others. Most of them are charged with multiple counts of each of their alleged crimes. The acts detailed in the indictments deal in large part with the interactions of the school officials, who would carry out votes on who would handle construction and banking activities for projects approved by their districts, with bond underwriter Gary Cabello and Seville Construction Services President Jeffrey Flores. The indictments cover many years’ worth of accusations, highlighting acts such as a dinner reported to have been bought by Cabello for representatives of the Southwestern Community College District at Fleming’s Steakhouse around Oct. 30, 2008 – a dinner reported to have cost him more than $1,100. In all, the indictments laid out more than 200 charges against the 15 defendants.
