Ex-Central Falls Mayor Moreau gets two years behind bars

February 12, 2013

PROVIDENCE — Although attorney William Murphy tried to paint former Central Falls Mayor Charles Moreau’s felony as a “victimless crime,” U.S. District Court Judge John McConnell declared that “public corruption has many victims” and sentenced Moreau to two years in federal prison.
Moreau was also fined $25,000, which the judge told the disgraced ex-mayor is “the amount of financial gain you received” 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.
