What's turning out to be a slow-moving public corruption trial resumes Friday morning in federal court in Boston.

Prosecutors are trying to prove former state probation Commissioner John O'Brien and two top deputies illegally rigged department hiring to curry favor with state lawmakers and win increases in the Probation Department budget.

This segment aired on June 27, 2014.
