Senator Vitter Won't Testify In Sex Case

By  | 

Washington (AP) A defense attorney says he will not call Louisiana Senator David Vitter to testify about his ties to an upscale Washington escort service.

Deborah Palfrey lawyer Preston Burton says he will rest his case today without calling the republican senator as a witness. Vitter has been on notice that he could have to appear during the prostitution trial.

Vitter has acknowledged eing involved with Palfrey's escort service and has apologized for what he called “a very serious sin.” He has since avoided most follow-up questions.
