[snip] I'd say that they are suirreled away preparing for the indictment more than an attempt to respond to accusations of his various involvements. [snip]
i'd say his ever expanding star-laden legal team suggests far more compellingly that he's the target.I Watch Cycling In July said:I think he gets indicted. The vast majority of GJ end up indicting the targets. LA hasn't been asked to appear which suggests he is a target.
No idea about the time scale though. These legal proceedings always seem to take 'sofa king' long.
Merckx index said:But Floyd's confession also meant Novitzky could no longer pursue LA under the radar, a situation in which, had nothing come up, no one might have known that it was even a possibility. Now, failure is not an option for him.

He might just view this as a professional investigation he's going to do well, into a relatively obscure niche sport, and he might not fear a finding that doesn't destroy LA - as long as he and his superiors felt the investigation was run thoroughly and got a legally correct 'answer' that won't leave egg on their faces later on.
Maxiton said:Given that it's Lance Armstrong were talking about, I suspect prosecutors won't pursue an indictment unless they feel their case is pretty much airtight.
Having said that, I'd also say the chances of him not being indicted are slim to none. I wouldn't be surprised, though, if it didn't happen until next year.
