The prosecution provided evidence at trial related to the defendants which included a sponsorship contract that Helio signed with a Brazilian company named Coimex. Coimex paid Helio $2 Million in Brazil in each of the years 1999, 2000, and 2001. Helio transferred $2 Million in each of the aforementioned years to a Panamanian offsore company in a US Bank account, that Helio owned with his family. This panamanian offshore company then transferred $1.8 Million in each years from 1999 thru 2001 to the bank accounts of the Coimex directors in their US bank accounts, thus breaking Brazilian Laws (see numerous news articles in Brazil of Helio and his family being investigated in Brazil with the Coimex directors). These documents of the Coimex deal and the money transfers were presented at trial along with two altered documents that Katiucia faxed to Penske Racing. A Special Agent also read prior sworn testimony by all three defendants from the Fittipaldi vs Castroneves lawsuit that did not favor the defendants' current defense strategy.

The indictment also stated that there were other unreported income and false deductions by Helio and his sister. I guess that these will also be presented with evidence by the Government before the defense puts on their case at trial.
