Stuart Levine, the prosecution's star witness in the corruption trial of businessman and political fund-raiser Tony Rezko, took the witness stand at 4:12 p.m.

Early in his testimony, Levine began detailing how he paid bribes to help companies obtain government contracts. Among those he paid was former Ald. Edward Vrdolyak, he testified.

Levine said it was his understanding that the bribe money would be passed by Vrdolyak to others.

More to come as details are available.
