racketeering and conspiracy trials of five men suspected of being members of the alleged Riviera Beach gang known as Buck Wild.

15:06 |

Testimony is expected to end Tuesday in the racketeering and conspiracy trials of five men suspected of being members of the alleged Riviera Beach gang known as Buck Wild.

Assistant State Attorneys Greg Kridos and Cheryl Caracuzzo since early May have been presenting jurors with evidence in their cases against Marquis Alfred, 20; James Anderson, 22; Larry Coe, 25; Quamaine Falana, 19; and James Roundtree, 22.

They rested today after questioning a records custodian from the social networking site Myspace and a woman who named Coe as the getaway driver for a gunman who robbed and nearly carjacked her.

Prosecutors say the alleged crime was just one in a string of violent acts the men committed as part of the gang. During the trial, they offered letters the men wrote while incarcerated, statements they made to police, and postings and photos on their Myspace pages as evidence of their alleged affiliation.

The mens' Myspace pages was the subject of much discussion last week after defense attorneys argued prosecutors tried to introduce the evidence improperly and that photos of some defendants holding guns could have been altered.

Palm Beach County Circuit Judge John Kastrenakes on today allowed much of the online postings into evidence, but threw out a number of photos because there was no way to prove whether they had been altered.

After prosecutors rested, jurors heard testimony from Anderson's girlfriend, who told them she and several other people living in the Gainesville apartment she shared with Anderson had access to his Myspace page, bolstering an argument from Anderson's attorney John Riordan that someone else could have made potentially incriminating statements on his page.

Kridos in his cross examination questioned her motives.

"Do you think you're helping James Anderson by saying what you're telling the jury right now?" Kridos asked at one point.

"No," she shot back. "I'm telling the jury the truth."

Defense attorneys are expected to continue presenting testimony in the case Tuesday . Kastrenakes said he expects jurors to begin deliberating the case later this month.
