PROSECUTIONS CLOSING STATEMENTS EARN HIGH MARKS IN KING CASE
Published November 9, 1995
Assistant Prosecutor Craig Stewart made a "powerful closing argument" yesterday in the Don King case, according to Greg Logan of NEWSDAY. Stewart "came alive in a passionate, 2-hour, 15- minute attack on King" in front of a full audience that included Mike Tyson. King is charged with nine counts of wire fraud (NEWSDAY, 11/9). Richard Sandomir writes Stewart "dramatically distilled a month's worth of testimony" (N.Y. TIMES, 11/9). ESPN legal analyst Ken Caruso said Stewart "really rose to the occasion. A masterful summation. ... He seriously damaged Don King's credibility with his arguments." ESPN's Jimmy Roberts said the case boils down to one question: "How credible of a witness was Don King in his own defense?" ("SportsCenter," 11/8).
