Closing arguments in the corruption trial of Senator Ted Stevens, R-Alaska

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Closing arguments come this morning in the four-week-long corruption trial of Alaska Republican Senator Ted Stevens. Stevens is charged with the felony offense of lying on his financial disclosure forms about gifts worth more than $250,000. The jury is expected to start deliberation Wednesday, and there are less than two weeks until Election Day, when voters will have their chance to choose Stevens' fate.
