Prosecution Hands Over Materials to Fall River Mayor
The defense team for Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia will soon be sifting through a lot of paperwork.
The Herald News is reporting federal prosecutors have handed over more than 18,000 pages of discovery material to Correia, related to the U.S. Attorney's investigation and indictment of the mayor.
Correia was indicted earlier this year on federal wire fraud charges. He was arraigned in October and pleaded not guilty to all counts. The mayor was released on unsecured $10,000 bond.
Both sides have asked for a court date to be set the week of February 11.
Meanwhile, the Fall River Election Office continues to certify signatures of registered voters for a possible recall election. Mayor Correia has said repeatedly that he will not resign.
