Cahill to pay $100,000 fine in lottery case

Won’t be retried for using Lottery ads to bolster campaign

Former state treasurer Timothy P. Cahill has agreed to pay a $100,000 civil fine in return for Attorney General Martha Coakley ending the groundbreaking criminal prosecution that charged him with misusing a state lottery ad campaign to bolster his 2010 run for governor.

Suffolk Superior Court Judge Christine M. Roach, who presided over Cahill’s trial late last year, which ended with a hung jury, accepted the agreement between Cahill and prosecutors at a hearing this afternoon.
