Perry Lawyers: Prosecutor Alleging Facts Not in Indictments

Monday, 23 Feb 2015 12:39 PM

Former Gov. Rick Perry's attorneys say a special prosecutor shouldn't be allowed to "insert facts not found" by Texas grand jurors who indicted him on abuse-of-power charges.

Perry's legal team again argued in a Monday filing that the case should be quashed. The lawyers said if it does continue, then one of the two felony counts against the Republican should be converted to a misdemeanor since Perry received no monetary gain from the alleged actions.

The brief responded to a Feb. 13 prosecutorial filing alleging that Perry tried to force a Democratic district attorney to resign to "stymie" the work of her public corruption unit.

Perry was indicted by a grand jury in August. He left office last month but is expected to soon announce a 2016 presidential run.
