AUSTIN, August 15, 2014– According to Austin, Texas NBC affiliate KXAN, on Friday, a grand jury served an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry (R- Texas) in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Travis County is home to Austin, Texas.

At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit run by Lehmberg’s office, which came after she pleaded guilty to drunk driving and served a 45-day sentence; Perry called on her to step down. However, Lehmberg refused to resign her position, which led Perry to veto the funding for the PIU.

A grand jury was called to determine whether or not Perry broke the law when he threatened to veto the funding. As a result, indictments were issued on two felony charges. 1.) Abuse of official capacity. 2.) Coercion of public servant. If Perry were to be found guilty, he could be sentenced to a maximum 109 years in prison.

An indictment indicates the grand jury believes the state has a strong enough case to send to trial.

“The first count of abuse of official capacity. It basically charges that on the day of the veto in 2013 that Governor Perry intentionally or knowingly misused government property that had come into his custody or control,” special prosecutor Michael McCrum said Friday afternoon.

According to KXAN, McCrum told reporters that he plans to meet with Perry’s attorneys on Monday.
