Duffy takes stand at his own trial


OTTAWA – Eight months into his criminal trial, Sen. Mike Duffy is taking the witness stand to testify in his own defence.

The embattled senator, a former member of the Conservative caucus, has pleaded not guilty to 31 criminal charges stemming from his travel, office and housing claims.

His testimony begins after the Crown formally rested its long case earlier today.

Duffy has always said he was looking forward to testifying and clearing his name.
