Convicted contractor sues Central Falls

Continue reading below

A contractor convicted in a Central Falls corruption scandal is seeking more than $32,000 from the city. The Providence Journal reported that contractor Michael Bouthillette is trying to collect the money in a lawsuit asserting that the city failed to pay his firm for work performed at Adams Memorial Library seven years ago. Bouthillette pleaded guilty to a federal corruption charge and was sentenced to probation and community service last year, after his company made more than $1 million from a no-bid city contract. Former Central Falls mayor Charles Moreau also pleaded guilty to corruption and is serving two years in federal prison for accepting a furnace, home repairs, and other work from Bouthillette.
