BOB & A.J. TRIAL DAY 11
Closing arguments were given in the case against Bob Cordaro and A.J. Munchak. Prosecutor Lorna Graham said that both defendants led lives that were out of the ordinary realm of everyday people pointing to the 30,000 dollars that was allegedly passed around from one of the county vendors. Defense Attorney William Costopoulos said Cordaro and Munchak were men of honor and accomplishment. He highlighted the achievements of the duo’s time in office and once more reminded the jurors that testimony witnesses against the former and sitting Commissioner had immunity. The jury received instructions from Judge Caputo and will start deliberations on Tuesday morning.
