New Judge Named In Probation Case

This article is more than 5 years old.

A new federal judge is taking over the corruption trial of the state's former probation commissioner.

Judge William Young has accepted the rigged hiring case against John O'Brien and two co-defendants.

Acceding to O'Brien's defense attorneys, Judge Dennis Saylor announced Thursday he would step aside, saying his impartiality might be questioned because of his friendship with another judge who may be called as a witness.
