Prosecutor: West Texas attorney in money laundering trial turned blind eye to crime

A prosecutor delivering her closing argument against a West Texas lawyer accused of conspiring to launder $600 million in drug money says he can't "turn a blind eye" as his defense.

Marco Antonio Delgado's case is likely to go to a jury Monday after a weeklong trial in El Paso.

Delgado is accused of conspiring with the ex-wife of a former Mexican president and others to launder money in 2007 and 2008.

Prosecutor Anna Arreola said Monday morning that Delgado had to know he was meeting with affiliates of a Mexican drug cartel when they allegedly asked his help with moving money and trying to slow down extraditions of suspects from Mexico to the United States.

Delgado has said the evidence and testimony by federal agents are lies.
