MIAMI (AP) -- A federal jury in Miami has resumed deliberations in the tax evasion trial of Indy race car driver Helio Castroneves and two others.
The 12-person jury went back to work Monday morning. Deliberations began Friday following a six-week trial for Castroneves, his sister-business manager Katiucia and his lawyer Alan Miller of Michigan.
All three face more than six years in prison if convicted of conspiracy and tax evasion. Prosecutors say Castroneves dodged more than $2.3 million in U.S. taxes from 1999 to 2004. Castroneves insists he is innocent and paid all taxes he owed.
The Brazilian driver is a two-time winner of the Indianapolis 500. He also won TV's "Dancing With The Stars" competition in 2007.
