BURKS TRIAL: Government Has Rested, Docket Says

Prosecutors have rested their case against Paul Burks of Zeek Rewards, according to the July 13 court docket.

Lawyers for Burks asked for an acquittal, but U.S. District Judge Max O. Cogburn Jr. denied the motion.

It appears Burks now will proceed with his defense.

The trial got under way July 5. Burks, 69, is charged with wire fraud, mail fraud, conspiracy to commit both and tax-fraud conspiracy.

Details of the trial to date have been sketchy. Local news outlets in the Charlotte area have not been reporting on a daily basis.
