BIRMINGHAM - NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ALABAMA - U.S. FEDERAL COURT: 


The federal fraud trial for Donald Watkins and his son began Tuesday with mentions of alleged victims, including sports stars Charles Barkley and Bryan Thomas, and a revelation from a prosecutor that former Birmingham Mayor Richard Arrington Jr. has immunity to testify in the case.


Donald Watkins Sr., 70, and Donald Watkins Jr., 46, are each charged with seven counts of wire fraud, two counts of bank fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud relating to a conspiracy the government claims lasted for nearly a decade. They were indicted in November.


Their joint trial began Tuesday in U.S. Chief District Judge Karon O Bowdre’s courtroom, but jurors were instructed to decide their cases separately. Both Watkins men are representing themselves.
