As the trial got underway in federal court today, Assistant U-S Attorney Rick Mountcastle told the jury it is a case "about choices," a choice between filing taxes and buying luxury cars.

He thinks government investigators believe he "stole cars, laundered money and sold drugs." Since they can't prove any of that, Young figures the tax case is the best they can do.
