(KSL News) Jurors in the Olympic bribery trial get a break, with no proceedings scheduled for today or tomorrow.
But testimony yesterday exposed a tangled web of questionable Olympic deals worth tens of thousands of dollars.
A former official with the U.S. Olympic Committee took the stand. In a previous plea deal with prosecutors, Alfredo LaMont pleaded guilty to two federal felonies.
LaMont testified about a secret consulting contract with the Salt Lake bid committee.
He says Tom Welch and Dave Johnson asked him to give $12,000 to an IOC member from Bardados. LaMont called it a "bribe."
On cross examination defense lawyers grilled LaMont about other secret consulting deals he had with Rome, Istanbul, and the Samsung Corporation.
