(( More than five years worth of fundraising is being boiled down to about ten days worth of testimony in Charlottesville's federal court ... as a jury tries to decide whether Richard Burrow went too far trying to raise money to build the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford.
Burrow faces a total of ten fraud charges ... prosecutors claim he got bank loans and state grants using non-existent or shaky donor pledges as collateral.
But defense attorneys say, with 11-hundred World War Two veterans dying every day, Burrow was under tremendous pressure to get the 25-million dollar monument built before its dedication on June 6th, 2001.
They also say Burrow believed all of his actions were legal, and that his motives were pure. ))

A state trooper may face reckless driving charges, the result of an accident three months ago. Trooper A-J Hairston was headed west on Route 57 when his cruiser collided with a Dodge Intrepid driven by 35-year old Lisa Johnson. At the time state police said Hairston was responding to a call and that Johnson pulled out in front of him. Johnson had to be cut from the wreckage. Trooper Hairston is still on leave, recovering from his injuries. Special prosecutor David Grimes planned to ask a Grand Jury to indict the trooper today for "exceeding reasonable speed under the existing circumstances and driving conditions."
