• Troubles mount for indicted mayor as he's evicted from apartment

    Updated:

    FALL RIVER, Mass. - The embattled mayor of Fall River plans to deliver a statement as his problems mount with word that he's been evicted from his apartment.

    Mayor Jasiel Correia pleaded not guilty last week to a 13-count federal indictment charging him with defrauding investors in a company he formed several years ago and filing false tax returns. He's scheduled to speak Tuesday morning at City Hall.

    The Herald News of Fall River reports Correia was served eviction papers from his apartment Monday. It wasn't immediately known why he was being evicted.

    The City Council is scheduled to meet Tuesday to consider a no confidence vote in the mayor, who said last week he would not resign. Some councilors say it's unclear if they have the authority to remove Correia from office.
