Prosecutors Want 3-Plus Year Sentence For Chuck Turner

BOSTON (CBS) — Prosecutors want Chuck Turner to serve more than three years in prison for corruption.

Prosecutors say Turner has repeatedly shown disregard for the court, particularly when he lied under oath.

The former Boston city councilor was found guilty in October of accepting a $1,000 bribe and lying to FBI agents.

Turner has maintained his innocence.

His sentencing is scheduled for Tuesday.

    He’s Chuck Turner before he goes to Jail and he’ll still be Chuck Turner when he gets out…. He’ll go right back to doing positive things and making a difference as he always has. You can bet on it.

  • Mark

    He’s Chuck Turner a convicted felon. Hey Chuck “GO AWAY” you crooked POS.

  • Michelle

    Thumbs up to Mark!

    If every person who lied under oath went to prison, there would be a need for hundreds more such facilities. Turner took a lousy $1,000 payoff and the government is making him out to be Al Capone. What about the bribes that are taken every week on Beacon Hill. Where was the jail time for the likes of Finneran, DiMasi and the rest of the thieves. Go after the drug dealers, the crooked cops & politicians & lawyers and then you can talk to me about Chuck.
