The jury in the extortion trial of Paul Pisasale is set to retire, and consider their verdict today.
The former Ipswich Mayor has been standing trial this past week, in the Brisbane District Court.
He's accused of dishonestly demanding a Sydney taxi driver pay him up to $10,000.
The Court has previously heard Pisasale was trying to recoup the money, for the man's jilted ex-girlfriend.
