Gov. Patrick, Three Ex-Aides Subpoenaed To Testify In DiMasi Case

Gov. Deval Patrick could soon be in court. Patrick and three former aides have been subpoenaed to testify in the upcoming corruption trial of former House Speaker Sal DiMasi.

The Boston Globe reports prosecutors have listed the governor and three former aides as witnesses in the trial, marking the first time in almost 16 years a sitting governor has been called to testify in a criminal trial.

DiMasi and three associates are accused of steering two multimillion dollar state contracts to the software firm Cognos, in exchange for kick-backs.
