One Question for Tom Delay
Why did you WAIVE the statute of limitations on the felony for which you have been indicted?
Without the waiver, you could not have been indicted.
Is there something we should know, that you haven’t told us?
Beginning after the image of the check at the bottom of this page, and concluding at the top of this page
THE GRAND JURY FURTHER PRESENTS that, with the advice and consent of counsel, the defendant, THOMAS DALE DELAY, did heretofore knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily waive the application of Articles 12.01 and 12.03 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure to the indictment presented herein.
In particular, the Grand Jury present that with the advice and consent of counsel, the defendant, THOMAS DALE DELAY, did knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily waive the requirement that an indictment for the felony offense of criminal conspiracy, the object of which is a felony other than those listed in Subdivisions (1) through (5) of Article 12.01 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, may be presented within three years from the date of the commission of the offense, and not afterward, insofar as such requirement pertains to the indictment presented herein,
In layman’s terms, the statute of limitations on the felony in question expired on September 13th 2005, which was three years after the check on the indictment was written.
That by the way, was the day that his “co-conspirators” were originally indicted.
There’s a lot more to this indictment issue. It isn't as flimsy as some would have you believe.
The first question first!
