Former State Senator Carlos Uresti is putting his Helotes mansion up for sale to help pay for his legal fees.

The six-bedroom house is listed for over a million-and-a-half dollars. It features two stories, five full baths, and three half baths. Uresti’s attorney says he’s broke and can’t afford to pay legal fees or the over six-million dollars he was ordered to pay Ponzi scheme victims.

In fact, Uresti’s attorney filed a motion asking that the former State Senators attorneys be appointed by the court, since he can no longer afford to pay them.

Uresti was convicted earlier this year of federal fraud charges. If you’re interested in seeing more, click here.
