We have an update tonight on Nueces Co. Justice of the Peace Joe Benavides, who was hospitalized last week for COVID-19.

The Pct. 1, Place 1 judge called to tell KRIS 6 News that he's out of the intensive care unit and has been moved to the critical care unit where he says he's doing a bit better.

Benavides says he is still putting up a fight and thanks everyone for the continued support.

We continue to wish him the very best in his recovery.
