Lawyers are set to give closing arguments on Wednesday, and the jury's deliberations will begin Thursday.

Prosecutors built their case around five former HealthSouth finance chiefs who pleaded guilty to participating in a $2.7 billion fraud. All five finance chiefs told jurors Scrushy was involved in the fraud.

The defense paints all the former CFOs as self-serving, greedy liars who turned on their old boss to avoid stiff penalties for a crime of their own making.

After 15 weeks of trial, the jurors will finally get to decide which portrait they believe.

If jurors convict Scrushy, they will then consider 12 more charges seeking $278 million in mansions, boats, cars and other assets under criminal forfeiture laws.
