Separate 2014 trial dates set for Degnan, Bonilla corruption trials

Degnan, Bonilla go to court separately early next year

(Continued)

More than two years ago, Lantigua was identified as a target in a multi-jurisdictional investigation that involved allegations of corruption, bid rigging, suspicious out-of-state travel, campaign finance violations as well as the shipment of cars and a trash truck to the Dominican Republic.

To date, Lantigua, who is seeking his second term as mayor in November, has not been charged and maintains his innocence.

Degnan, owner of a Salem Street insurance company, served as Lantigua’s chief of staff from January 2010 to May 2011, when he abruptly resigned. He testified in Boston before a federal grand jury investigating Lantigua and his administration shortly after.

Both Degnan and Bonilla are due back in Superior Court on Sept. 11.
