Tom DeLay Still Waiting to Learn Legal Fate

Saturday, 22 Sep 2012 05:56 PM

 

Former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay is still waiting to learn his legal fate since being convicted nearly two years ago for his role in a scheme to influence Texas elections.

DeLay's three-year prison sentence has been on hold as his case has been on appeal.

He tells The Associated Press that his faith in Jesus Christ has helped him through this difficult time and he is ready to go to prison, if need be.

But his attorney, who says DeLay was the victim of a politically motivated prosecution, is hoping to overturn the conviction. He will make his case to the 3rd Court of Appeals in Austin on Oct. 10.

Prosecutors with the Travis County District Attorney's Office say their case against DeLay was never about politics.
