Although, maybe not hard enough while God only knows when he will serve.

Senior Judge Pat Priest sentenced DeLay, 63, to a five-year sentence for money laundering and three years for conspiracy for a scheme to illegally funnel money to Republican Texas candidates in 2002.

 

The judge allowed DeLay to serve 10 years probation in lieu of the five-year term, but ordered him to serve the three-year term with no probation.

 

"Judge, I can't be remorseful for something I don't think I did," DeLay said at the hearing before Priest handed down the sentence. "I fought the fight, ran the race and kept the faith."

 

Due to a potentially lengthy appeals process, it could be years before DeLay serves time, prosecutor Gary Cobb said.

DeLay, dubbed "The Hammer" for his hard-driving style, was found guilty on November 24 of conspiring to illegally funnel $190,000 in corporate campaign donations to Republican candidates for the Texas Legislature in the 2002 elections.
