The corruption trial of Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner entered its second day on Tuesday. The court heard opening statements on Monday.
Turner is accused by the FBI of accepting a $1,000 bribe in exchange for helping secure a liquor license for a Roxbury businessman. That businessman, Ron Wilburn, participated in a sting operation against Turner and was supposed to be the FBI's star witness. But last week Wilburn said he might not testify against Turner. Today Wilburn met with U.S. District Court Judge Douglas Woodlock to discuss the matter.
We speak with WBUR reporter David Boeri, who was at the courthouse.
