Statement from U.S. Attorney Rachael S. Rollins on the First Circuit Ruling in U.S. V. Jasiel Correia II

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Massachusetts

“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.”
