Former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has been subpoenaed to testify in a police torture case.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Daley was served the subpoena Friday. It involves a post-conviction petition by 59-year-old Stanley Wrice, who is serving a 100-year sentence for rape. Wrice claims officers beat him with a flashlight and rubber hose until he confessed. Prosecutors contend they had proof to convict him of the 1982 crime, even without the confession.

The case dates to when Daley was Cook County's state's attorney. The Illinois Supreme Court ruled in February 2012 that Wrice could continue seeking a new hearing on evidence of the torture.

Wrice is one of dozens of men who have claimed since the 1970s that Chicago police used torture to secure confessions.
