Prosecutors, who will begin opening statements in the trial Tuesday, claim the embattled pol illegally pocketed more than $22,000 in cash and campaign contributions from four co-defendants who allegedly bribed Stevenson to obtain favors and legislation helpful to their Bronx adult day care centers.

All of the co-defendants have pleaded guilty.

Since Monday, sources say Stevenson put out a call for supporters to come to the trial.
