Prosecution may rest on Day 7 of Langford trial

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) - The prosecution is expected to wrap up its case on Tuesday in the Larry Langford trial. It will then be the defenses turn and the big question is whether Larry Langford will take the stand.

On Monday, jurors heard testimony about Langford's financial problems as prosecutors detailed the money trail between him and co-defendants Bill Blount and Al LaPierre.

It was revealed Monday that the mayor, at one time, had a credit card debt of about $240,000. Langford's attorney, Glennon Threatt, says credit should have nothing to do with the trial. "There are a lot of factors that determine whether or not you get credit. But the mayor is not accused of having a bad credit score. The mayor is accused of the crimes included in the indictment. What I'm trying to do as his lawyer is defend him against the charges, not explain to you or anyone else why some credit agency gave him the score that they gave him," quipped Threatt.

Threatt has not indicated whether or not Langford will take the stand in his own defense.
