Schock's attorneys file motions to dismiss case

SPRINGFIELD - Former U.S. Congressman Aaron Schock is motioning to dismiss part of his indictment in federal court. His attorneys filed the documents Thursday.

One motion asks the courts to drop counts 14-18 of the indictment, which are related to campaign funding accounts he established. He's accused of falsifying filings with the Federal Election Commission.

The other document seeks a dismissal of an indictment for the violation of three constitutional provisions. They include "the Constitution's rulemaking, speech or debate, and due process clauses."
