Lying Under Oath Deadly
Prosecutors said that ink expert Larry F. Stewart committed perjury on the stand during the obstruction-of justice trial of Martha Stewart.
Mr. Stewart, laboratory director for the U.S. Secret Service, was charged with two counts of perjury, facing five years in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors said that Mr. Stewart lied when he said he participated in the testing of ink on a worksheet supposedly showing a pre-existing agreement with Martha Stewart to sell her shares of Imclone stock.
