PROVIDENCE â There was no word on any decision regarding the case of former Central Falls Mayor Charles Moreau following a status conference held on Thursday in U.S. District Court.
A status conference concerning Moreauâs corruption case, for which he was convicted on a federal fraud charge, was scheduled for 9:30 a.m. before Judge John J. McConnell, Jr. Reporters were not allowed into the chambers where the conference was held.
Emerging from the courthouse to a throng of reporters waiting outside, Moreauâs lawyer, Anthony Traini, issued a terse âno commentâ as he hurried away. He later told those still in pursuit that he would not speak about the case.
Jim Martin, public information officer for the U.S. Attorneyâs Office, also said that the office had no comment about the conference or Moreau's case.
