Alarcon draws Villaraigosa's sister as judge

The judge presiding over Councilman Richard Alarcon's preliminary hearing today is M. L. Villar de Longoria, the sister of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. No issue for the prosecution, the Daily News' Dakota Smith tweets.

Alarcon is facing charges over the DA's allegation that the councilman registered to vote and run for office at different address than where he actually lived.
