Attorneys are expected to make their final pitch in the trial of an Idaho retirement trustee facing 17 counts of wire fraud for allegedly misusing fund resources to try and buy Tamarack Resort.
Defense lawyers for Matthew Hutcheson and federal prosecutors are planning to make closing arguments in the trial Monday morning.
Hutcheson is charged with taking $5 million from retirement accounts he oversaw to acquire the ski resort, buy luxury vehicles and remodel his home.
He defended himself last week, saying he acted responsibly to invest the money in hopes of bringing solid returns for fund contributors.
Prosecutors argue Hutcheson knowingly concealed business decisions from his partners and clients in his failed bid to acquire Tamarack.
If convicted, Hutcheson faces up to 20 years in prison on each count.
