Rezko trial: Levine can't remember year he pleaded guilty

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

This morning, star prosecution witness Stuart Levine says pleading guilty was one of the most significant days of his life. He agrees it was the culmination of all his efforts with the government, which included more than 100 meetings. But when Tony Rezko's lawyer, Joseph Duffy, asks Levine specifics, he can't remember.

Levine said he couldn't tell jurors on what day he pleaded guilty.
"Can you tell them what month, sir?" Duffy asks.
No, Levine says.
"Could you give me the year?"
"No, sir," Levine answered.
Duffy tossed out a mocking question: "Did you plead guilty?"
"Yes sir," Levine quickly answered.
Duffy:"But you would agree with me it was one of the most significant days of your life?"
Leine: "Yes, sir."
For the record: Levine pleaded guilty October 27, 2006.
