Ronald Crosby faces accusations that he deceived investors about the current state of his companies in order to fraudulently drive up share prices for his own profit. These companies later collapsed and Crosby left the country meaning he couldn't be arrested until being induced home in the belief his house had attracted a buyer. Witnesses tell of his charm and abilities as a raconteur. The prosecution insist that this charm was used for dishonest purposes; Crosby retorts that he has been a victim of the recession and his assets have also been wiped out by blackmail linked to his past homosexuality.
