[JURIST] Attorneys for Tom DeLay, (R-TX) [official website] have filed a motion to dismiss grand jury indictments against the former House majority leader. DeLay's legal team alleges that Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle [official website] and his staff engaged in prosecutorial misconduct when they tried to coerce members of a grand jury into filing a second indictment against DeLay. The first indictment on one count of criminal conspiracy [text] was issued on September 28, and a second indictment [JURIST report] on charges of money laundering followed on October 3. On October 5, reports indicated that a third, and previously unknown, grand jury had declined to indict DeLay on the same charges [JURIST report]. Earle released a statement late Friday refuting Delay's allegations, and maintaining the integrity of his actions. Reuters has more.
