AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Lawyers for indicted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton are asking a judge to toss criminal charges that accuse the state’s top prosecutor of securities fraud.

His attorneys said Monday night that leaks tainted the indictment this summer by a grand jury in Paxton’s hometown of McKinney. More than 100 pages of court filings also claim the investigation into Paxton and the lead-up to the felony indictment was mishandled.

Special prosecutors called those suggestions baseless and not worthy of comment.

Paxton has already pleaded not guilty to criminal charges that accuse the Republican of deceiving wealthy investors in a tech startup in 2011. The alleged fraud took place before he became attorney general in January.

Paxton has said he will not resign.
