Rezko trial: 'Spartacus' revealed

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)


Amid the shakedowns, bribes and kickbacks overheard on an FBI wiretap in Tony Rezko's trial, Stuart Levine could be heard referencing "Spartacus" who was just about to march into Rome.

When prosecutor Chris Niewoehner had Levine explain the reference to the jury, Levine smiled:
"I was watching the movie Spartacus and I didn't want Steve (Loren) to come in at an exciting part."

Loren is the lawyer who Levine said he could "control" when he was hatching a $1 million bribe scheme.
