Prosecutors rest case against former RI lawmaker

Posted: Updated:
PROVIDENCE -

The prosecution has wrapped up its embezzlement case against a former Rhode Island lawmaker.

Prosecutors say Leo Medina of Providence pocketed $28,000 from a life insurance policy on a friend's daughter, who died in 2007.

The Providence Journal reports a member of the state police financial crimes unit testified about Medina's bank records in an effort to show he took the money.

Medina served one term as a Democratic state representative from Providence. He lost his bid for a second term in 2012.

His trial will resume on Monday.
