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.
