Dec. 3 — The trial resumed a while ago. Prosecutors stressed in their final arguments that the top shitholer sanctioned his company’s tax fraud scheme. The jury is to begin deliberations next week.

Dec. 6 — The verdict is in: G U I L T Y on all 17 counts of tax fraud and financial crimes. The jury needed only a day to decide.
