Odessa American Receives Shocking Photos of ECISD Trustee 5/7/13

Odessa - Shocking photos are surfacing of what appears to be an Ector County ISD board member engaging in possible illegal activity.
The Odessa American uncovered the pictures. They appear to show ECISD board member, Luis Galvan, bagging a leafy green substance.
A reporter with the Odessa American confronted Galvan today just outside of the ECISD Administration Building.
She asked him about the photos, which were sent to paper by an unnamed source.
The OA has shared a few of the photos with CBS 7.
In the photos, you can see a man bagging what appears to be marijuana.
OA reporter Lindsay Weaver had a 15-minute conversation with Galvan.
According to the OA, Galvan acknowledged the photos were of him, but says they're from several years ago.
He also told the OA he believes the pictures were photo shopped.
Galvan is quoted as saying, “I’ve experimented before. I know all the presidents have…everyone, to a point.” Galvan said, adding that it hasn’t gone on in years. Later in the conversation with the OA, he said “sometimes I do use. If I’m at a party or maybe a concert.”
The OA even asked the Narcotics Department at the Odessa Police Department about the pictures.
They say there is no investigation involving Galvan at this time and that third party photos like those obtained by the OA isn't enough to substantiate a charge.
There are a lot of questions surrounding these photos obtained exclusively to the OA.
They have much more on their conversation with Galvan and additional photos. You can find them in tomorrow morning's edition of the Odessa American.
