PROSECUTIONS CLOSING STATEMENTS EARN HIGH MARKS IN KING CASE

     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).
