United States Attorney Rachel Rollins issues statement on Jasiel Correia court ruling



United States Attorney Rachel Rollins has issued a statement after today’s ruling regarding former Fall River mayor Jasiel Correia.

“After six delays, today’s order from the First Circuit declares what so many have longed to hear in the case against former Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia – he will begin his prison sentence in the coming days. Although we cannot erase the impact Jasiel Correia’s conduct and subsequent legal battle has had on the City and constituents he swore to honestly serve, this ruling marks the next step in bringing justice to the people of Fall River and the many others who fell victim to his corruption.”

Correia’s request to delay his prison reporting date was denied today by the Appeals Court which means he will be reporting to a medium security prison in Berlin, New Hampshire this week.
