NEW: Moreau Sentenced to Two Years in Federal Prison

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

 

Three months after pleading guilty to corruption charges for awarding a no-bid contract to a longtime friend and political supporter in exchange for a discounted furnace, Charles Moreau has become the latest former Rhode Island elected official to head to federal prison.

Moreau, the former Mayor of Central Falls, was sentenced today to two years behind bars as well as a $25K fine and a total of 300 hours of community service for the three years following his release.

Moreau, who stepped down from his position in September, had sought a reduced sentence of 21 months but U.S. District Court Judge John J. McConnell declined, citing the former mayor’s betrayal of the public’s trust.

Moreau is scheduled to report to prison on March 4.

bothilette sentence was awful. a disgrace.

the guy is a thief. so he gets caught and he just gives the money back. he still probably came out ahead with all the overbilling he did. why dont you call the banks that owned these properies that were charged $10k per house for $2k worth of work.

a really bad message from mcconnell - fyi - actions speak louder than words. a letter???? think about the level of greed. honest people lost their houses becasue of no work while dishonest people line their pockets. boutilette not only stiole, he was big time greedy about it.

crime pays!!!

Moreau is a _________________. Go on say it! You know it would be in the headline if he had a R after his name.
