DeLay Wins Appeal: Court Upholds Indictment Dismissals

Tom DeLay's Statement on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals
Decision to Uphold the Dismissal of Indictments:

"The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals today ruled that I was wrongfully indicted by Ronnie Earle, the Mike Nifong of Texas, on laws that didn't even exist. The court affirmed the decision to throw out the conspiracy indictments because they were based on laws that weren't even on the books. What Ronnie Earle accomplished is no rookie error - it's a political attack using our legal system as the primary weapon."

"Ronnie Earle's politically motivated indictments cost Republicans the leader of their choice, and my family hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees. The damage he has done to my family and my career cannot be rectified, but the courts have recognized a significant portion of the injustice and ruled accordingly. For nearly two years I have been willing and eager to go to trial and with this ruling, we are thankfully closer to that day."

"Ronnie Earle may think this case is about campaign finance, but in the end it will be a case about his own prosecutorial misconduct."
