CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — An ex-governor of the northern Mexican state of Tamaulipas has been charged with money laundering in Texas.

Eugenio Hernandez Flores and his brother-in-law, Oscar Gomez Guerra, were indicted by a federal grand jury in Corpus Christi.

Both men, who remained fugitives Friday, are charged with conspiring to launder monetary instruments and aiding and abetting the operation of an unlicensed money transmitting business.

Gomez was indicted last year on money laundering charges and also named in the indictment returned May 27 and unsealed Thursday. He’s married to the ex-governor’s sister.

If convicted, the men face prison terms of up to 25 years. The Department of Justice is also seeking $30 million from the men, plus seizure of three properties in McAllen and one in Austin.

Hernandez left office in 2010.
