The "Trial" Of Michael Milken
Jun 29, 1996
In 1990, after years of relentless persecution by the government and vicious treatment by the press, Michael Milken, a financial genius, felt compelled to plead guilty to charges ofwhich he believed he was innocent. (He subsequently served a prison sentence.) This presentation consists of a fictionalized ending to the trial that should have taken place but never did. Closing arguments are presented by the "prosecution" and the "defense." A jury from the audience will be impaneled and will reach a verdict.
