Continuing Coverage: Rick Perry Indictment
The state’s highest criminal court announced Wednesday that it will review the felony charges against former Gov. Rick Perry.
The Court of Criminal Appeals granted review of two appeals, setting an aggressive schedule that includes oral arguments on Nov. 4.
Perry has asked the court to dismiss a first-degree felony charge of misusing his powers as governor.
A second felony charge, coercion of a public official, was dismissed in July when a lower appeals court declared the coercion law unconstitutional because it violated free-speech rights.
