Courier-Journal: Motion made to exclude Felner statements

December 23, 2008

The lawyer for former education dean Robert Felner says federal authorities violated his client’s rights when they interrogated him for more than six hours at the University of Louisville in June.

As a result, attorney Scott C. Cox has filed a motion in U.S. District Court for Kentucky’s western district in Louisville asking that Felner’s statements during the interrogation be excluded from the case.

Felner, 58, is facing 10 counts of mail fraud, money-laundering conspiracy and income-tax evasion, after a federal grand jury indicted him in October.
