Former wunderkind Massachusetts mayor gets six years in prison

A former Massachusetts mayor first elected at age 23 was sentenced on Tuesday to six years in prison after being convicted in May of defrauding investors in a smartphone app company and extorting money from local marijuana businesses. Former Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia, now 29, said nothing as U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock in Boston ordered him to be incarcerated for engaging in “reprehensible corruption of a type that is incomprehensibly crude.” Correia’s lawyer, William Fick, argued that his client’s youth impeded his ability to know better and urged Woodlock to give him just three years in prison, saying his history “suggests there is at least hope.”
