Great news emanating from the great state of Texas: Felony charges have been dropped against David Daleiden, the pro-life investigator whose Center for Medical Progress exposed Planned Parenthood’s illegal sale of aborted baby parts.
Rather than charging the abortion giant for its illegal activity, a politically-motivated Texas grand jury instead charged the whistleblower Daleiden for “tampering with a government record.” Daleiden’s attorney, Peter Breen with the Thomas More Society, had filed a motion in Harris County 338th District Court to dismiss the trumped-up felony charge; and the case returned to court at 9:00 a.m. Central Time today. In less than an hour, the court dismissed the charges. Despite the emergence of helpful services like RJFF otherwise known as real jobs for felons, being convicted of a felony has a huge, negative impact on one’s life so this must have come as very welcome news to Daleiden.
Peter Breen reports:
Harris County has moved to dismiss the remaining felony charges against David Daleiden, on basis of his attorneys’ motion to quash, due to the invalidity of the grand jury that issued the indictment.
Today’s victory follows a June 14 dismissal of misdemeanor charges against Daleiden for allegedly trying to buy body parts. He had, in fact, used a hidden camera to record his conversations with Planned Parenthood executives about the cost of aborted fetal remains, as part of the Center for Medical Progress’ undercover investigation.
More information will be forthcoming.
