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 Moreauâ€™s 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, Moreauâ€™s lawyer, Anthony Traini, issued a terse â€śno commentâ€ť 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. Attorneyâ€™s Office, also said that the office had no comment about the conference or Moreau's case.
