Lawyers for former state probation commissioner John O'Brien and his co-defendants have launched a two-day assault on the character and motivation of a key government witness.

Francis Wall, a top deputy to O'Brien, has testified that he did "everything and anything" to assist his boss' alleged scheme to rig hiring at the probation department.
