AUSTIN, TX (WKOW) -- A judge has ordered former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay to serve three years behind bars for his role in a scheme to illegally funnel corporate money to Texas candidates in 2002.
In November, a jury convicted DeLay on charges of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
DeLay, who was once one of the most powerful men in U.S. politics, had faced up to life in prison. His attorneys asked for probation.
