Rezko trial: Levine's most significant moment

In 2006, Stuart Levine’s decision to cooperate with the government was a frightening, profound experience, he told Tony Rezko's lawyer Joseph Duffy.
“The nature of the meeting was such that I have never experienced,” Levine recounted in his first meeting with government agents after his decision to cooperate. "There were things that were going on in my mind at that time that were most extraordinary and outside of the realm of any experience I had before sir.”

Duffy has spent the morning asking about Levine's decision to cooperate and the benefits he received from it. Levine faced spending his natural life in prison and struck a deal that included giving testimony against Rezko. That deal calls for Levine spending 67 months in prison.
