Defense Continues Attempt to Discredit Testimony in Trial of Osceola Native Logan Young

JANUARY 31, 2005 - Posted at 7:52 a.m. CST

 

MEMPHIS, TN - Defense testimony continues today in Memphis where a businessman is accused of paying a high school coach to send a top football recruit to the University of Alabama.

Memphis millionaire and Osceola native Logan Young is indicted on charges of bribery, conspiracy and structuring a financial transaction to evade bank reporting requirements.

If convicted on all counts, Young faces a maximum of 15 years in  prison and a $900,000 fine.

After calling more witnesses today, the defense is expected to rest tomorrow with closing arguments beginning Wednesday.

On Friday, a former Alabama assistant coach Ivy Williams denied suggesting that defensive lineman Albert Means get a stand-in to take his college entrance exam before signing with the Crimson Tide in 2000.

Also, former Georgia head coach Jim Donnan denied giving money to Lynn Lang, Means' former coach at Memphis Trezevant High School.
