Finneran Expected to Plead Guilty

This article is more than 12 years old.

Today, former House Speaker Tom Finneran is expected to plead guilty in federal court to one count of obstruction of justice. It's a change from his original plea and is reportedly part of a deal in which federal prosecutors will drop three counts of perjury.

The charges stem from Finneran's involvement in redrawing voting districts in 2001 and then allegedly lying about it before a judge. WBUR's Monica Brady-Myerov reports on reaction.
