PROVIDENCE â€” When the North Smithfield public schools tried to raise money for interscholastic sports in 2009 by assessing participation fees, some students paid the charge willingly, but the move was met with legal challenges and dropped when booster clubs raised the necessary money to run the teams.
PROVIDENCE â€” Although attorney William Murphy tried to paint former Central Falls Mayor Charles Moreauâ€™s felony as a â€śvictimless crime,â€ť U.S. District Court Judge John McConnell declared that â€śpublic corruption has many victimsâ€ť and sentenced Moreau to two years in federal prison.
Moreau was also fined $25,000, which the judge told the disgraced ex-mayor is â€śthe amount of financial gain you receivedâ€ť from the crime. He was ordered to perform 300 hours of public service once he gets out of prison and he will remain under supervision for three years after his release.
