Richard Dietrich, a senior technician at International Business Machines Corp., analyzed the computers that were seized from Bernie Madoff’s Midtown Manhattan office and is a prosecution expert witness.

According to Yahoo News, the attorney representing computer programmer Jerome O’Hara, warned jurors to beware of the government’s star witness and Madoff’s former finance chief, Frank DiPascali.
