Moreau resigns

September 19, 2012

PROVIDENCE — The longtime mayor of struggling Central Falls resigned and has agreed to plead guilty to a federal corruption charge of accepting gifts in exchange for handing out a lucrative contract to board up city houses, according to papers filed Wednesday.
The plea agreements bring an end to a two-year investigation that hung over the state's smallest city, even as it struggled through a painful municipal bankruptcy and faced questions over whether it would have to merge with another city to survive.
