A shy federal judge based in a provincial capital has become a celebrity in Brazil, where he is shaking up the nation's power structure while overseeing what may be the largest corruption probe in Latin American history.Over the past three years, Moro has been instrumental in the so-called Car Wash probe that already has sent dozens of top businessmen and politicians to jail and is still expanding.Friends, colleagues and journalists who have covered the case closely say Moro is a deeply private man – a law wonk who voraciously pores over legal cases in several languages.A few years later, when Moro was no longer teaching, the two began dating and wed.In a 2004 article for a legal journal, Moro noted the way Italian judges used plea bargains to advance investigations, keeping suspects in jail while their cases were processed and taking advantage of news media to shape public opinion.Critics in the highly polarized country often accuse Moro of taking sides.
