February 26, 2010 (CHICAGO) --Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has been subpoenaed to testify at the trial of a developer charged with bribing an alderman. Corporation counsel Mara Georges confirms she received the subpoena Tuesday from attorneys for Calvin Boender. She said the mayor will take the witness stand if the court finds his testimony is relevant and required.
Boender has pleaded not guilty to charges he bribed former Alderman Ike Carothers with $40,000 in home improvements in exchange for a zoning change.
Carothers pleaded guilty earlier this month.
