Swetnam/Carter Trial Begins

Insurance agents Swetnam and Carter are facing their day in federal court in Houston on charges they sold boggus insurance policies to Valley Baptist Medical Center (Harlingen, Texas) and profited by over $1 million.

The prosecution  rested their case  yesterday. The defense begins. Court documents show that defendent Carter is apparently distancing himself from co-defendent Swetnam.

In reviewing court documents, it seems the prosecution has an open and shut case. But, inside sources say the defense will have some surprises for the court this week.

As always, denfendents are innocent until a jury decides otherwise.
