Josh Schaffer, a lawyer for Planned Parenthood in Houston, said he believes the tampering charges stemmed from the activist’s use of fake IDs, which resembled California licenses, according to court documents. Under Texas law, he said, using a fake ID is elevated to a more serious felony charge if the accused intends to “defraud” or “do harm to” a person or organization.
Daleiden’s misdemeanor charge, related to buying human tissue, arose from an email he sent Planned Parenthood in June 2015, asking to buy fetal tissue for $1,600, Schaffer said. “It doesn’t matter if he intended to buy it,” Schaffer said, “making the request is illegal, even if an offer isn’t accepted.”

.... But Anderson is under criticism over the fact that a prosecutor in the Harris County District Attorney’s office serves on the Board of Directors for Planned Parenthood and Anderson also failed to prosecute an abortionist known as the Kermit Gosnell of Houston who snipped babies’ necks like Gosnell did.
That criticism is leading to calls for a special prosecutor to be appointed.

I also read that they were charged with using fake ID's, and I assume just getting them in the first place is a crime as well.
