Defense to Rest Tuesday in Young Trial
By Alabama Public Radio
Memphis, TN – The defense is expected to call more witnesses Monday and rest Tuesday in the Memphis trial of businessman Logan Young. Young is accused of paying a high school coach to send a top football recruit to the University of Alabama. He's been indicted on charges of bribery, conspiracy and structuring a financial transaction to evade bank reporting requirements. Closing arguments are likely to begin in the trial Wednesday. If convicted, Young could face up to 15 years in prison and $900,000 in fines. Former Alabama assistant coach Ivy Williams on Friday denied suggesting that defensive lineman Albert Means get a stand-in to take his college entrance exam. Also in Friday's testimony, former Georgia head coach Jim Donnan denied giving money to Means' former high school coach Lynn Lang.
