The OCC has issued Consent Orders to four former directors of the First National Bank, Edinburg, Texas (closed in 2013) -- Dwayne Bair, Oscar Garza Jr., Arcadio Guerra, and Jack McClelland -- directing that each pay a civil money penalty of $5,000, and that each share the order with any future employer in the banking industry.
