Where Does His Co-Defendant’s Guilty Plea Deal Leave Sal DiMasi?
Sal DimasiA co-defendant in the corruption case against former Massachusetts House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi is expected to plead guilty to eight counts in connection with an alleged bid-rigging scheme involving two state software contracts. In exchange for Joseph Lally’s guilty plea, prosecutors are expected to recommend a sentence of two to three years in prison, followed by two years of supervised release. The plea agreement says Lally will cooperate with the government, which means he could be called to testify against his co-defendants. DiMasi's attorney maintains the former speaker's innocence, but no matter which way you slice it, my next guest says any time a defendant turns government witness; it’s bound to have an impact at trial. We’re joined by attorney Stephen G. Huggard, a partner at Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge and the former chief of the public corruption unit of US attorney’s office in Boston and by WGBH’s Adam Reilly, who is covering this morning’s hearing in federal court.
