A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect for Austin, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Madision, Montgomery, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker, Waller, & Washington Counties until 8am Saturday morning.
Before the day is over, Enron's former finance chief is expected to take the stand in the trial of company officials Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling. Andrew Fastow is a key player in the case.
Fastow, who's facing ten years in prison for conspiracy, is expected to take the stand today for the prosecution. The trial is in its sixth week.
The government is expected to portray Fastow as critical to its claim that Lay and Skilling lied to Wall Street and their own employees about the company's finances before Enron went bankrupt.
Lawyers for Lay and Skilling say there was no overarching fraud at Enron. They say the company collapsed in part because Fastow was
stealing money from it.
