Leroy Holmes wraps up testimony at WTU trial

The Times (who have been all over this story) has an update to the ongoing WTU embezzlement trial. Leroy Holmes wrapped up five days of testimony telling the three defendants that they should confess to their crimes.
"This whole case is about a lie," former chauffeur Holmes told jurors in the trial of three former union employees charged with stealing and hiding more than $5 million from the union.

"I am guilty," said Holmes during cross-examination by defense attorneys, and "your clients need to admit what they did."
The judge in the case has indicated that the prosecution may rest its case as early as next Wednesday.
