12:08PM Back in the courtroom and Judge Edmunds is ready to get things going again.
Government calls FBI agent Joseph Jensen, Unfortunately he is not in his tight Levis. Has been with FBI for 2 and 1/2 years. Prior to FBI, was an army captain in Iraq.
Jensen says he had to fill out a lot of paperwork to withdraw $90,000 to use for test. Brought it to court today. Blackwell pulls out huge stack of cash and hands it to Jensen who sets it in front of him. Jensen says this was the cash he used in test: $73,500 in $100 bills and the balance in $50s.
Jensen says 9 stacks are $10,000 each with some with 50/50 split between $100 and $50 bills.
Blackwell is holding up stacks and showing it to jurors. Judge decides its best not to pass around to the jury.
"Not that I don't trust you guys," to roars of laughter from the courtroom.
