WASHINGTON -- Defense lawyers for two top-ranking members of the Church of Scientology Tuesday urged a jury to find the officials innocent of charges stemming from an alleged scheme to burglarize government offices.

Lawyers for Jane Kember and Morris Budlong, who were extradited from England to face trial here, said the government has not proved the two defendants aided and abetted others to commit a crime.

The U.S. District Court jury was scheduled to begin its deliberations in the case Wednesday.
