Disgraced former City Councilor Chuck Turner, who reports to prison Friday for a three-year sentence, is hoping to get the last word.

Turner, 70, who was convicted of bribery in a federal corruption scandal, is hosting a talk Thursday at Northeastern University titled “Framing the Innocent.”

Turner has frequently alleged that federal law enforcement targeted him. Turner was convicted in October of taking a $1,000 bribe. The talk is being dubbed as Turner’s last public appearance, according to a story on blackstonian.com. The event is a “public discussion about the U.S. Attorney’s Office and what we can do to hold it accountable to our concerns.” It starts at 7:30 p.m. at 240 Dockser Hall.

A reporter who attempted to reach Turner at his Roxbury home yesterday was turned away.
