Prosecutors have prepared their case to present to the highest Texas criminal court in support of reinstating the convictions of DeLay. DeLay was convicted in 2010 of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering for participating in a scheme to influence Texas elections. But a lower appeals court ruled last year that prosecutors failed to prove their case and vacated DeLay's convictions.
