Beavers will not take stand it tax case
Closing arguments begin tomorrow in the tax evasion trial of Cook County Commissioner William Beavers.
The defense has rested and Beavers did nottake the stand, even though he’d vowed to testify.
The veteran Chicago politician told the judge, he would not testify on the advice of counsel.
His attorneys only put one witness on the stand, an accountant.
Beavers is accused of using campaign cash for gambling and failing to report it on his income tax returns.
He has pleaded not guilty.
