Jury set in LA in Thai film festival bribery case

A jury has been selected for the trial of a Los Angeles filmmaking couple accused of bribing Thai officials to run the Bangkok International Film Festival.
Opening statements are expected to begin Wednesday afternoon.
Gerald and Patricia Green have pleaded not guilty to charges that accuse them of paying $1.8 million in bribes to Thai officials so they would be awarded lucrative business contracts. In return, prosecutors say the couple earned about $14 million.
If convicted of conspiracy, money laundering and other charges, they each could receive up to life in prison.
Gerald Green produced Oliver Stone's "Salvador" and most recently "Rescue Dawn" starring Christian Bale. Patricia Green produced "Diamonds," a comedy starring Kirk Douglas and Lauren Bacall, with her husband.
