Wow, that was fast

Former Gov. Don Siegelman and his co-defendants in a federal corruption trial rested their case Monday after calling fewer than 20 witnesses total, none of whom were called by Siegelman. His lawyer later offered an explanation of that decision: "We didn't want to give any credibility to their rattle-trap, junked-up case. We're going to get this thing over and send Gov. Siegelman back to his family." Closing arguments are set for Wednesday.
