As prosecutors wrapped up their case in the trial of former Pilot Flying J executives yesterday, former company president Mark Hazelwood chose not to testify on his own behalf, Knoxnews reports. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Trey Hamilton and David Lewen rested their case against Hazelwood, former vice president Scott Wombold and former account representatives Heather Jones and Karen Mann, all accused of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Defense attorney Rusty Hardin said he “strongly believed” that the government had not proved its case. The prosecution declined to summon former vice president John “Stick” Freeman, who pleaded guilty before this trial begin.
