Dennis Kozlowski is not the only accused that the jury will hear from in this trial, as former CFO Mark Swartz took the stand today. Hearing a defendant say - I didn't do anything wrong - certainly is beneficial. The downside, however, comes when the witness-defendant has to go through cross-examination. It may be more problematic here as Mark Swartz took the witness stand at the last trial - a trial that ended in a mistrial. This means there is prior testimony that prosecutors have probably closely scrutinized. For more details on what Mark Swartz testified to today, see the AP story in the Atlanta Jrl. Constitution here.
