The jury selection for San Benito Mayor Joe H. Hernandez’ trial has been delayed yet again.

According to Melissa Zamora, Public Information Officer for the Cameron County District Attorney’s Office, cause for the delay was due to a court reporter having a death in the family.

This marks the third time that the mayor’s trial has been delayed since it was initially scheduled for Monday, Sept. 16, when it was pushed back to inclement weather brought on by Tropical Storm Ingrid.
