Stanford gets ill during court hearing

Allen Stanford, the man accused of bilking investors out of $7 billion, became ill during a court hearing in Houston and wiped blood away from his mouth.

His attorney blamed the condition on stress Stanford feels from being held in solitary confinement.

Stanford was in court to set a trial date in his case when he began bleeding.  That prompted the judge to stop and ask the financier if he was all right before resuming.

Wednesday was the first time Stanford had been in court since he got into a jail fight last month that resulted in him being hospitalized for a concussion.
