Lawyers for the prosecution and defense outlined their cases to the jury in the trial of the founder of the U.S. branch of an Islamic charity.

Pete Seda is accused of tax fraud in an attempt to smuggle $150,000 to Muslim fighters in Chechnya.

Federal prosecutor Chris Cardani said this is not a terrorism case, but that it is a tax case. Cardani said Seda falsified records to avoid a paper trail for the money.

Defense attorney Larry Matasar said they agreed with many facts in the case but that they have a different way of looking at them. He says they will show many of mistakes on tax forms were made by the charity's accountant and not Seda.
