  • Jury Picked For Salt Lake City Trial


    (ATR) - A jury has been selected for the federal trial of former Salt Lake City bid leaders Tom Welch and Dave Johnson. After three days of selection a panel of eight men and four women will hear the case against the two men.

    Opening statements from both sides in the case are ahead for October 31 with a one-hour time limit. Following those statements the prosecutors will begin presenting their evidence in the case.

    The lawyers for the U.S. Department of Justice say they need about 10 days to present their case, with 43 possible witnesses. Rebuttal by the defense could take as long.
