Benji Hardy reports that the defense has begun putting on its witnesses in the trial of former mental health services provider Ted Suhl on bribing public officials to help his business, which took in $125 million in Medicaid money in four years for residential and community-based services for youths.

Suhl himself is testifying. He's describing at length the good works of his residential facility, once known as the Lord's Ranch, but later renamed Trinity Behavioral Health. Benji tells me Suhl is  depicting himself as a victim of religious discrimination, hassled by DHS because of his religious belief and said the name change was forced by DHS. It's not yet known if the government will delve on cross-examination into the various investigations of abusive practices at the Lord's Ranch over the years.

Benji will be back later with a detailed report.
