RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – An FBI agent is wrapping up the prosecution’s case in the public corruption trial of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen.

Agent David Hulser will be back on the stand Thursday to continue testifying about the McDonnells’ finances and phone records.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Dry says the government expects to rest its case Thursday. If that happens, the jury will take Friday off and begin hearing from defense witnesses Monday.

The McDonnells are charged in a 14-count indictment with accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from the former CEO of a dietary supplements maker in exchange for promoting his company’s products. They could face decades in prison if convicted.
