Charged with looting the life savings of his grandmother, legendary Philadelphia radio host Mary Mason, Calvin Steven Turner IV had nothing to say Tuesday after he bolted from a Norristown courtroom after a brief pretrial hearing.
The development comes more than three months after Turner, 34, balked at pleading guilty after first indicating that he would take a deal.
“We’re negotiating, trying to resolve it, trying to work on the dollar figures” of the amount allegedly stolen, Mullaney said in an interview. He said the agreement “will be significantly different than originally thought. I think that the dollar figures are going to drop from the million-dollar range down to below one hundred thousand.”
