NEW YORK - Testimony at the Sandy Annabi corruption trial today shifted away from the Ridge Hill development controversy.

The focus of the trial turned to Milio Management, which wanted to turn the old Longfellow Junior High School into upscale housing, a project that Annabi opposed.

One of the developers, Franco Milio, testified he hired politically connected Hawthorne attorney Anthony Mangone to win Annabi's support.

Mangone has pleaded guilty to paying a $30,000 bribe in the case.

Both Milio and his father also took plea deals on federal tax charges.
