AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Oral arguments have begun before the highest Texas criminal court to determine if the conviction of former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay will be reinstated.

Attorneys for DeLay, who once held the No. 2 job in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Travis County District Attorney’s Office are making their arguments in Austin before the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. DeLay is attending Wednesday’s hearing.

He 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.

DeLay had been sentenced to three years in prison, but the punishment was put on hold pending the appeal.
