Jurors in the trial of Senator Ted Stevens heard final testimony today. The last word was from Senator Stevens himself. Closing arguments will start tomorrow morning, with jury deliberation
beginning Wednesday. Stevens is charged with felony counts of lying on his financial disclosure forms about gifts, including the renovation of his Girdwood house. Stevens’ testimony came down
to what qualifies as a gift, and how much he knew about the men working on his home remodeling project.
