NEW: Moreau Sentenced to Two Years in Federal Prison
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
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.
