For days Alamo insisted he would testify in his own defense. It's a move his defense team spent more than 4 hours on Wednesday convincing him not to do. Alamo appeared to fall asleep during closing arguments from prosecutors. He also seemed agitated when government lawyers told the jury, "your crimes have been exposed."
Defense lawyers told the jury prosecutors tried to "infect the jury with anger" to convict their client. Phillip Kuhn urged jurors not to be distracted by the government's efforts to pull at their heartstrings.
While being escorted from the federal courthouse in Texarkana, Alamo told reporters he couldn't win against "this unjust court." Jurors will pick up deliberations on Thursday morning at 8:30 A.M.
