Meyer Focuses Criticism on Richard Testimony
Meyer focused heavily on former Jensen staffer Richard's testimony, and tried to discount it. He called her claim that she put the host committee together for the annual Jensen pig roast fundraiser in 1997 "absolute B.S."
He said Jensen was brought up to trust people to do the right thing, and that is how he has conducted himself. "Honest people trust. Dishonest people see dishonesty. He trusted," Meyer told the jury.
Meyer called Richard's claim that Jensen solicited money from lobbyists from his office "pure, absolute garbage."
His closing statement ended after approximately one hour and 20 minutes.
Meyer's final quote to the jury: "I do hope that you do the right thing. That you find the truth. That you find the justice, and let Scott go home to his family."
