Jury selection for Tom Delay trial begins

Posted on October 27th, 2010 No Comments

This week, the jury selection for former House Majority Leader Tom Delay’s trial began in Austin.

Charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering were filed against Delay five years ago.  Delay pushed for the trial and sources say he entered the Travis County Courthouse with high hopes that he will not be convicted.

The charges came about after suspicions that he was illegally financing Texas GOP legislative races in 2002.  The trial has been delayed several times for pretrial appeals but officials expect to have the jury selected today and for the trial to begin next week.

If you or someone you know has been charged with money laundering or another federal crime, contact the Houston federal crimes attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer P.C. at 713-222-0400 to learn more about your rights.
