AUSTIN, Texas -- A warrant won't be issued for the arrest of Gov. Rick Perry following his indictment on two felony charges of abuse of power.
Linda Estrada, a grand Jury clerk in Travis County, said Monday that the judge overseeing the case decided against issuing an arrest warrant.

Estrada said that Judge Bert Richardson decided instead that Perry will receive a summons to appear which has not been issued yet.
It won't be until Perry's defense attorney and the state set a date for him to appear in court.
It wasn't clear if Perry was going to have to be booked or have a mug shot taken.
Perry was indicted Friday on charges of coercion and official oppression for publicly promising to veto $7.5 million for the state public integrity unit run.
