A senior executive at Hollinger International testified in Chicago yesterday that he and media magnate Conrad Black plotted to divert noncompete payments to top company executives, including themselves.
Radler portrayed himself as a passive participant in the plan, even though he pocketed millions of dollars, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Black is on trial in Chicago for allegedly defrauding shareholders.
Radler has already pleaded guilty to a single fraud count and has paid $8.5 million in restitution, according to the Wall Street Journal.
