  • Key Witness Under Attack


    (ATR) - A key government witness has been granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for his testimony at the trial of former Salt Lake City bid leaders Tom Welch and Dave Johnson.

    Former bid committee finance officer Rod Hamson was granted immunity in a sudden move today by federal prosecutors. Under cross examination by the defense, Hamson is being asked about thousands of dollars of travel reimbursements he received from the bid committee that had already been credited to his charge card.

    The defense is hoping to undermine the credibility of Hamson, who has been on the witness stand for five days.
