Rezko trial: Oh yeah, I wrote a check for $3 million

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Star witness Stuart Levine tells the jury today that he wrote a check for $3 million -- and forgot.
He saw a copy of the check and started an inquiry with his secretary to find out how his signature got on it. Um, he was the one who signed it.
Levine testified this happened in 2004. That's the same year that FBI agents approached him. Before that, Levine said he regularly abused a significant amount of drugs.
The defense will certainly use the revelation of an example of Levine's questionable memory as he testifies against Tony Rezko.
