defense attorney representing one of six men charged with running organized crime through a street gang asked a federal judge this morning to tell the jury that none of the evidence supports the charges."All they're trying to show is that he's a bad guy," said Craig Shultz, who represents Lonnie Wade.Shultz said the testimony so far has failed to support charges of rackeetering via the Crips street gang.U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten said such an instruction was improper at this point. He said prosecutors were trying to establish certain criminal acts before they got to the heart of their case.Federal prosecutors have spent the week building a time line of crime from 1991 to 2007, when the charges were filed. Testimony continues today before Marten.Prosecutors have had to work around reluctant witnesses, who fear retribution by the Crips -- the gang the men are accused of belonging to -- even in retelling crimes they witnessed more than a decade ago.The Eagle is filing live updates from the courtroom, a first for Wichita federal court.
