Attorneys: Stanford a 'wreck of a man'
HOUSTON The description of /*R. Allen Stanford*/'s mental and physical condition is contained in a motion filed Tuesday by his attorneys in Houston. They are asking a federal judge for a third time to grant the jailed financier a bond so he can be free while awaiting trial next year on charges he bilked investors out of $7 billion as part of a massive Ponzi scheme. Two previous requests have been denied. This latest motion was prepared with the help of the newest member of Stanford's legal team, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz.
