Always the diplomatic salesman. The 63-year old realtor left the courthouse still frustrated by the delay in the time between his indictment and trial. ((EIGHT YEARS IS A LONG TIME.))
RUNS=:02


NINE years ago, Frith sold a farm in Floyd County to Columbian Cocaine trafficker Javier Cruz.
Then there was a large cash transaction- -that prompted Frith to structure deposits at the bank to come in UNDER 10-thousand dollars... trying to avoid the scrutiny from the IRS.
He was convicted of "structuring;" found NOT guilty of playing a part in Cruz's drug conspiracy.
After nine hours of deliberation the judge declared a mistrial on the one remaining charge. 15:54:30 ((THOUGH THE FOREMAN INDICATED TO THE JUDGE THAT IT DIDN'T APPEAR PROMISING THAT THE JURY COULD COME UP WITH A VERDICT ON THE MONEY LAUNDERING COUNT AGAINST FRITH, SEVERAL JURORS INDICATED THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO STAY- -EVEN AT 3:30 IN THE MORNING- -AND CONTINUE TO DELIBERATE.))

The foreman said the jury had trouble agreeing on the law in the case.
He emphatically rejected any notion that Frith might have been set up by the government.
Though Cruz's ex-WIFE testified the informant himself did NOT. 15:38:30 ((THERE WERE A NUMBER OF WITNESSES WE DIDN'T CALL IN THIS CASE. AND CERTAINLY WE FELT WE PROVED OUR CASE, EVEN WITHOUT MR. CRUZ AS A WITNESS.))

((If you are not already totally cynical about politicians and political campaigns, "Wag the Dog" will finish the job. When a president is accused of sexual misconduct with a fire fly girl, his Mr. Fix-it, Robert De Niro, is called in to do damage control. De NIro and a presidential aid, Anne Heche, jet to the coast to bring in the number one movie producer, a brilliant performance by Dustin Hoffman to create a diversion. They plan a "Pageant which will look like war with albania, and they want Hoffman to produce it. So he does, complete with a theme song, slogans, commercial tie in and fake war footage. They even find a "war hero" (Woody Harrelson). The strategy sessions and brainstorming by Hoffman and his cronies create the best moments in the film; which sags a bit towards the end.
