FALL RIVER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Former Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia reported to federal prison in New Hampshire on Friday to serve his six-year corruption sentence.
Correia was convicted of multiple corruption charges last year, including extortion and wire fraud. He was supposed to report to prison in December, but had his report date delayed seven times.
Correia was first arrested in 2018. Voters recalled him in March of 2019, only to re-elect him the same day. However, he was ousted following his second arrest in 2019.
The former mayor was first elected at the age of 23 in 2015.
