Roger Beidler is standing trial on nine counts of money laundering in connection with a drug and gambling ring in central Virginia.
Prosecutors say Beidler took more than 100- thousand dollars from ringleader Wendell Wood, and invested it in a real estate development.
To avoid filing a federal transaction report, Beidler made the deposits in amounts of less than ten- thousand dollars.
Beidler testified today he never knew the source of Wood's money and only broke up the deposits to protect Wood's privacy.
The jury began its deliberations about two hours ago.
