Lindsey Case Goes To Jury Today (Updated)

In LA on Friday, the arguments and jury instructions were completed in the trial of Lindsey Manufacturing, its CEO Dr. Keith Lindsey and CFO Steve K. Lee, and its former Mexican agent Angela Aguilar.

The jury is set to begin deliberations today.

First there will be a hearing at which the judge will rule on Aguilar’s motion to throw out the case against her.

Aguilar is charged with money laundering. The Lindsey defendants face eight counts of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and FCPA violations.

The government says Aguilar and her husband helped arrange millions in bribes from California-based Lindsey Manufacturing to Nestor Moreno, an official at the Mexican state-owned electric utility Comisión Federal de Electridad. The bribes were allegedly paid in exchange for contracts to Lindsey from CFE.
