The last witness was called in the federal prosecution of Calvin Walker, alleging in a 37-count indictment that he defrauded taxpayers by overcharging BISD millions of dollars since 2006. Walker's wife, Stacy Walker, took the stand and testified she sent many of the admittedly altered documents acidentally to the school district in September 2009. She claimed ignorance as to other altered documents provided to BISD before and after that date. According to her, all the evidence against her husband are a series of mistakes. Prosecution was attempting to question the witness about the couple altering tax reurns for 2008. A short recess was called after the defense objected to the questioning.
