The prosecution has rested in the federal corruption trial of Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK), just thirteen days and infinite calls for a mistrial later. The last day for the prosecution brought emails from a neighbor of Stevens about the work at Stevens’ Girdwood home, an attempt to show that Stevens was more involved with the work than he previously has claimed. But the prosecution didn’t go out on a high note. In yet another motion for a mistrial launched by the defense, the judge threw out key evidence from the prosecution, though he did say the trial would continue. (AP)
