Black’s comments came after two weeks of intensive testimony from Radler, the
chief witness for the prosecution in the fraud case against Black.
Radler agreed to plead guilty to the fraud and to also testify against his
former media tycoon partner in exchange for a lenient jail sentence and fine.
But his testimony was torn apart by Black’s lawyer, who accused him of
implicating Black so as to secure a cushy deal from the prosecution.
‘I don’t think he has any credibility,’ Black said outside the Chicago
‘I don’t think any jury in the world would convict anybody on the basis of
what he said. I repeat my long-standing view that this was never a criminal case
– except possibly against him.’
