The trial may end earlier than expected.

The prosecution in Tim Durham‘s federal trial in Indianapolis could wrap up its case today.

Durham and partners Jim Cochran and Rick Snow face nearly a dozen charges of conspiracy and wire and securities fraud. Prosecutors are using wiretapped phone conversations and email evidence in their effort to convince jurors that Durham and partners ran bilked 5000 investors out of $200 million.

Initially, Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson told jurors the trial could last three weeks, but it appears both sides may rest as much as a week early. Defense attorneys are expected to take two days to present their case, meaning the jury could get the case as soon as Wednesday.
