Appeals Court Clears way for Paxton Trial

It looks as though Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton will be headed to a trial on fraud charges.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has refused Paxton’s appeal.

The charges stem from business deals made several years before Paxton won the race for Attorney General in 2014. He faces the possibility of decades behind bars for allegedly touting an energy company without revealing he was paid to do so.

Paxton also faces a felony charge for failing to register with State securities regulators.

The ruling comes days after Paxton won a separate legal fight in civil court where a suit filed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission was dismissed.
