Bookie, bettor to testify against state trooper

A reputed bookie and one of his bettors are expected to take the stand in a federal courtroom this week to describe how a State Police trooper allegedly threatened them with violence in an attempt to extort thousands of dollars, according to court records filed in federal court in Boston.

The bettor and the bookie, who owed him money, will be key witnesses in the case against John M. Analetto, the state trooper who has been held since his arrest in December 2011 on two counts of extortion, according to a trial brief filed last week in court that outlines the government’s strategy in the case. Jury selection begins Monday in the trial.
