A Victoria attorney was arrested Friday on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity and money laundering.
Frank Henderson was indicted on the charges Thursday.
The money laundering charge is for more than $200,000.
He made bail on Friday, according to court documentation. The amount he was bonded out for was not on court documentation.
The indictment dates back to a Feb. 18, 2009 raid at the Victoria Internet Cafe. It was closed for suspected illegal gambling.
Henderson, 44, served as the cafe's attorney in the case, according to the Advocate's archives.
Henderson was home Friday night, but declined to comment on specifics about the charges.
"I assume this is about the Internet Cafe," Henderson said.
Court documentation shows the date of the charges as Feb. 19, a day after the cafe raid.
Henderson is best known in Victoria as an attorney who ran for district attorney in 2006 and 2010.
