A couple weeks later, Smith testified, he hired the paramour of former county auditor Kay Rogers at Lang’s request.
FBI Special Agent Kevin Gormley took the stand before Smith. During the cross-examination, Lang’s defense attorney Ralph Kohnen questioned Smith’s credibility, asking Gormley if Smith’s assistance was helpful.
“He was honest about some things, but some things he left out,” Gormley said of initial conversations with Smith. “At a certain point he became cooperative. It takes some time for some people to be cooperative and this is just one of those situations.”
