A state employee had testified that Dixmoor Mayor Donald Luster claimed he didn't file tax returns because he was a black militant who was protesting society.
His lawyer, Marc Hamilton, said in his opening statement that Luster doesn't deny failing to pay taxes on time, or being "overpaid" in unemployment benefits, but argued that his client did not willfully break the law.
Luster was elected mayor of Dixmoor by one vote in April 2001.He took office a month later after a judge ruled that he could serve despite felony convictions for robbery and battery.

CHICAGO -- The arraignment of Dixmoor Village President Donald Luster on fraud and tax charges was postponed Tuesday because Luster did not have an attorney to represent him, the Illinois Attorney General's Office said.
The Rev. Luster, 39, 14209 Circle Drive, is accused of fraudulently collecting unemployment benefits and failing to file state income tax returns.He is charged with one count of state benefits fraud and two counts of failure to file state income tax returns.
The attorney general's indictment alleges that between Oct. 16 and Dec. 31 of 1999, Luster collected unemployment benefits from the state while working and earning wages from Express Personnel Services.It also alleges he failed to file state income tax returns for income received in 1999 and 2000.
The investigation of Luster was conducted by the Illinois Department of Revenue and the Illinois Department of Employment Security.
Benefits fraud, a Class 3 felony, is punishable upon conviction by two to five years in prison.Tax fraud, a Class 4 felony, carries a penalty of one to three years.
Luster's term as mayor began amid a flurry of election-related controversy.He campaigned amid allegations of police corruption and financial problems in the community, and won by one vote in April 2001.
The Cook County State's Attorney's Office tried to bar Luster from taking office because he was convicted of armed robbery in 1991 and, prosecutors argued, he did not live in the village one year, as required by ordinance.
