The FBI tweeted: “Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia was arrested this morning by @FBIBoston IRS-CI & @HUDOIG special agents at his home. He’s accused of conspiring to extort hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from marijuana companies.”
Speaking on the issue further, U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said that his office is “the primary deterrent” to such corruption. “I take that seriously, and we will continue to aggressively pursue corruption in local, city and state governments,” he said.
