Reiser

After three months of the prosecution's case, Hans Reiser's defense opened Tuesday with verbal salvos portraying wife Nina Reiser as the not-so-perfect woman -- in stark contradiction to how the prosecution and dozens of its witnesses had described her.

On Tuesday, jurors were told of an affair, of embezzlement allegations, that she advertised herself in a European bride catalog, and that she became pregnant with the couple's first of two children before they married in 1999.
