The jury in the trial of State Representative Kino Flores will return to hear final arguments and maybe consider a verdict on Tuesday.
The veteran lawmaker did not take the stand and has pleaded innocent on charges that he took bribes and failed to report gifts and cash income. Flores maintains that he simply did not fill out required financial statements correctly. He says there is no obligation to fully report his consulting work. The jury is expected to retire and consider the evidence which could result in two years in prison.
