Laboy perjury trial set for tomorrow


Record keepers from three car services, Liberty, Methuen and Apple, may also be called to testify, according to court papers.

Last March, Laboy sentenced to two years in jail, with 90 days to be served. However, he served only 60 days at the Correctional Alternative Center in Lawrence, known as the Farm, after he was released 30 days early for good behavior.

At the Farm, Laboy, an educator for 37 years, worked with inmates trying to obtain high school diplomas.

In addition to the Laboys, failed mayoral candidate Israel Reyes and Rivera were both charged with using the school department’s $500,000 printing press to make up free political literature for local and state candidates.

In October 2011, Reyes, 38, pleaded guilty to two counts of larceny of property valued over $250. He was sentenced to one-year probation and ordered to stay away from the Lawrence Public Schools.

Then in April 2012, Rivera, 35, pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor counts of larceny of property valued under $250. He was sentenced to one year probation and ordered to stay away from the Lawrence Public Schools.
