Day 3: FBI agents testify at trial of former Cuyahoga County Judge Bridget McCafferty

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – Two FBI agents took the witness stand Wednesday at the corruption trial of a former Cuyahoga County Judge.

Both agents interviewed former Judge Bridget McCafferty at her home in 2008, she's accused of lying to them. 

McCafferty admitted she spoke to former DAS CEO Steve Pumper and former County Auditor Frank Russo about cases in her court.  She denied fixing any cases, but refused to listen to phone calls secretly recorded between her, Pumper, and a separate call with Frank Russo.

The FBI wanted McCafferty to be a star witness, she refused and lawyered up. 

McCafferty's defense took over just before the day ended, they subpoenaed Frank Russo's former co-worker Destin Ramsey, the defense's first witness.  They were hoping to use Ramsey to poke holes in Russo's testimony that clearly damaged the judge's defense on Tuesday.
