Third time the charm? Perry files another motion to have indictments quashed

Attorneys for former Gov. Rick Perry filed a third motion before the judge in his coercion case seeking to get the indictment tossed.

Thus far, Judge Bert Richardson has denied the attempts, but in his most recent ruling, he found the indictment was flawed because it lacked sufficient details about the charges against Perry. The special prosecutor can amend the indictment and shore it up by adding more specifics.

Relying on the judge’s concerns, Perry filed his latest motion raising similar claims. The motion to quash the indictment states that the governor is being prosecuted for exercising his constitutional authority and that the indictments don’t lay out sufficient detail to allow Perry to prepare a defense to the charge.

The defects deny Perry of “adequate notice and certainty of the offense,” the motion states, saying they are “vague, uncertain and indefinite.”
