FORMER PROSECUTOR INDICTED
(2007-10-31)
(wgvu) - JURORS BEGIN DELIBERATIONS TODAY IN THE CASE
AGAINST AN EX-FEDERAL PROSECUTOR ACCUSED OF MISCONDUCT IN THE
NATION'S FIRST MAJOR TERRORISM TRIAL AFTER NINE ELEVEN.
LAWYERS GAVE CLOSING ARGUMENTS IN DETROIT IN THE TRIAL OF
EX-ASSISTANT U.S. ATTORNEY RICHARD CONVERTINO AND EX-STATE
DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATOR HARRY SMITH.
THE DEFENDANTS ARE CHARGED WITH OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE, LYING IN
COURT AND CONSPIRACY.
CONVERTINO'S LAWYER SAYS HIS CLIENT WAS A HARDWORKING, HONEST
PROSECUTOR, WHILE SMITH'S LAWYER SAYS HIS CLIENT TESTIFIED
TRUTHFULLY AT THE 2003 TERROR PROSECUTION.
A JURY CONVICTED TWO NORTH AFRICAN IMMIGRANTS, BUT A JUDGE LATER
OVERTURNED THE CONVICTIONS ON GROUNDS OF GOVERNMENT MISCONDUCT.
