PAWTUCKETâ€”A 79-year-old Pawtucket man, Hillario DePina, was indicted by the Providence County Grand Jury on Oct. 28 on sexual assault charges involving minors.
According to the Rhode Island Attorney General's Office, DePina, of Leonard Jenard Drive, was charged with two counts of first-degree child molestation and one count of enticement of a child.
PAWTUCKET â€” It was a little over a year ago â€” Sept. 9, 2010 to be exact â€” that The Met brought the music back to Pawtucket. And despite a tough economy, veteran club owner Rich Lupo said the venue at 1005 Main St. has been a success â€” although he feels it remains somewhat undiscovered by Pawtucket residents themselves.
â€śYou're always surprised how far people will come to see a show. We've had people from a 40 to 60 mile radius depending on the artist,â€ť Lupo said. â€śYet, I wish people from Pawtucket would think of it as a close location.â€ť
