Moreau strikes plea deal; could be freed Friday

February 26, 2014

PROVIDENCE — A former mayor whose corruption conviction was thrown into question by an appeals court struck a deal that would allow him to be freed from prison after serving half his two-year sentence.

Charles Moreau, former mayor of the financially troubled city of Central Falls, agreed in a deal filed on Wednesday to plead guilty to a new charge of accepting a bribe. As part of the deal, federal prosecutors recommended Moreau be sentenced to time served.

Moreau could be released as soon as Friday, when a hearing on his case is scheduled before U.S. District Judge John McConnell.
