Anthony, Texas Mayor Art Franco decides not to resign after all

Mayor Franco's attorney had said he would resign after conviction on state charge

EL PASO, Texas - Art Franco is still the mayor of Anthony, Texas despite his attorney saying he would resign at Tuesday night's meeting after pleading guilty to a state charge last week.

Franco pleaded guilty last week in district court to tampering with government records and was sentenced to three years probation. He was charged after he understated a town employee's salary on a form for subsidized housing purposes in 2010.

Franco was re-elected as mayor on Saturday after running unopposed.

He did not answer ABC-7's questions after Tuesday night's meeting.
