Update: City Councilor Chuck Turner showed up last night for the regular city council meeting, despite his conviction last week in federal court for accepting a $1,000 bribe. Turner was caught on camera taking the bribe in exchange for his help securing a liquor license, and later lying about it three times to the FBI.

Turner has repeatedly refused to resign from his office, although it may no longer be his decision once he’s sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodcock on Jan. 25. If given prison time as expected, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
