Sarno's lawyer Terry Gillespie said witnesses called by the government cut plea deals and have an incentive to lie about his client's alleged involvement in the bombing of a Berwyn company that supposedly belonged to a rival video poker operator.
He said Sarno had nothing to do with the bombing and was not the boss of a criminal enterprise. The lawyer for pawn shop owner Mark Polchan also slammed the credibility of key witnesses that cut plea deals, calling their testimony "water from a poison well."
"I think the government relied on the wrong people as sources for information in this case, and I think that's pretty clear throughout the trial," said Polchan attorney Damon Cheronis.
The jury is expected to begin deliberations on Monday.
