Troubles mount ever higher for Lawrence mayor
Prosecutors have paraded Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua’s aides and allies in front of three different grand juries investigating whether he has committed crimes during his two years in office. Meanwhile, prosecutors in Lantigua’s native Dominican Republic are investigating whether the mayor threatened to “destroy’’ a man last week. But Lantigua finds himself increasingly isolated against the gathering legal storm. Lantigua says he can’t even afford an attorney to prepare for indictments that may be only weeks away.
