Howard board, superintendent in legal battle as they run county school system

Otto Kerner

Former Illinois Gov. Otto Kerner gets in an elevator at the Federal Building in downtown Chicago on Jan. 17, 1973, where he was undergoing a trial on charges of accepting race track stock while governor as a bribe from Arlington Park officials, in exchange for choice racing dates. Kerner was convicted on 17 counts of bribery, conspiracy and perjury, and was sentenced to three years in a federal prison. He was released early, after it was determined that he was suffering from terminal cancer. Kerner died in 1976.
