A Travis County Grand Jury re-indicted Tom DeLay yesterday on money laundering charges stemming from the 2002 Texas elections. The new indictment charges DeLay with both first-degree and second-degree felonies. These are much more serious charges than the indictment of September 28. A first-degree felony is punishable by 5 years probation to life in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. A second-degree felony is punishable by 2 years probation to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
