Chuck Turner seeks Supreme Court review of his conviction

Former Boston city councilor Chuck Turner is asking the US Supreme Court to review a federal appeals court’s decision that upheld his 2010 corruption conviction.

Turner filed a petition seeking a review earlier this month, and the US solicitor general’s office last week waived its right to respond to the request, accord­ing to the Supreme Court docket. A lawyer for Turner, Charles W. Rankin, could not be reached for comment on Tuesday.
