Ex-aide to William Lantigua convicted of corruption

Faced corruption charges

A former top aide to William Lantigua when he was mayor of Lawrence was convicted on corruption charges Monday by an Essex Superior Court jury for pressuring a city vendor to donate a garbage truck to a city in Lantigua’s native Dominican Republic.

Leonard Degnan, one of several Lantigua allies facing criminal charges stemming from their work in his administration, was immediately ordered into custody by Superior Court Judge Douglas Wilkins until a sentencing hearing April 3.
