CONROE, Texas (AP) - A lawyer for Texas billionaire R. Allen
Stanford says his client has had a medical procedure that allows
doctors to diagnose and treat certain heart conditions.
Criminal defense attorney Dick DeGuerin told the Houston
Chronicle he did not know the results of the heart catheterization
test that was done Monday.
Judy Rodriguez is a health supervisor at Conroe Regional Medical
Center and Tuesday she declined to release information on Stanford
to The Associated Press.
DeGuerin has said Stanford fell ill while in federal custody and
was taken to that Houston area hospital Thursday after having a
high pulse rate. The illness caused Stanford to miss a court date
in the trial that accuses him of orchestrating a $7 billion fraud.
He has denied the allegations
