Texas Court Reverses Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's Money Laundering and Conspiracy Conviction

Found guilty in 2010


A Texas court overturned the conviction of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, Thursday, formally acquitting him of conspiracy and money laundering charges.

Houston CBS affiliate KHOU reports the Texas Third Court of Appeals said in documents released Thursday morning that the evidence in the case was "legally insufficient to sustain DeLay's convictions."
