[The prosecution rested its case today.]
The owner of an assisted-living company told jurors Thursday at a bribery trial that Mike Morgan wanted $1,000 a month when he asked the then-Senate leader in 2006 for help with regulators.
“This is the way it works: You pay me a $1,000-a-month retainer,” the witness, Sam Crosby, recalled Morgan saying.
“I looked at him a little bit and said, ‘Is that legal?’” Crosby, 70, testified.
He said Morgan, an attorney, replied, “Yeah, that’s legal.”
