A Central Texas man who shot and killed a sheriff's deputy entering his home will not be charged with capital murder, attorneys said Thursday.
A judge ordered former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to serve three years in prison Monday for his role in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay is getting the trial he's been seeking for five years that he says will clear him of allegations that he illegally funneled campaign money. Now he wants the case moved out of liberal Austin.
Mr. DeGuerin said Mr. Earle shopped among grand juries seeking quick indictments and didn't provide grand jurors with all the information they should have been given.
Lead defense attorney Dick DeGuerin said the "harshly drawn lines in politics today" could hamper the efforts to try Mr. DeLay, who was a lightning rod for liberal critics.
