Next Stop: Closing Arguments.

The defense for ex-Rep. William Jefferson rested its case Thursday, opening the door for closing arguments, which are scheduled for Tuesday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.

The defense and prosecution will each have  2 1/2 hours to argue before the jury of eight women and four men at the trial in Alexandria, Va., the Picayune reported.

Jefferson, 62,  who did not take the stand on his own behalf, faces 16 counts including bribery.

The case gained national notoriety after FBI agents raided the Congressman’s Capitol Hill condo and found $90,000 in marked FBI bills in his freezer. The FBI probe began in March 2005.
