Jury selected for Allentown mayor’s trial
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A jury has been selected for next week’s federal corruption trial of Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski.
The (Allentown) Morning Call reports that seven men and five women — plus six alternates — were picked Tuesday in Philadelphia for the mayor’s trial in Allentown.
A district judge said in court that opening statements are scheduled for Monday.
The Democrat is accused of accepting more than $150,000 in campaign contributions in exchange for city business. He has pleaded not guilty.
Pawlowski was sworn into office for a fourth term earlier this month.
