Railroad told witness to lie
MEMPHIS – A witness, who testified in a jury trial involving a 2003 train accident that left one man permanently disabled, admitted to perjuring himself. He admits that attorneys for Illinois Central Railroad Company paid for his hotel room during the trial and instructed him to lie to the judge about it. The witness also changed his testimony after the judge explained to him the consequences of perjury. Let us hope that this is not standard procedure for all railroad companies.
