McLaughlin to plead guilty

Former Methuen town manager charged with under-reporting his salary


McLaughlin eventually resigned under pressure from the town council in October 1992.

Though McLaughlin has been investigated for wrongdoing numerous times he has never been indicted or found guilty until the current charges were brought against him.

Attorney General Martha Coakley has said her office is also pursuing a criminal investigation that has focused, in part, on McLaughlin’s fundraising for Lieutenant Governor Timothy P. Murray.

His lawyer, Thomas Hoopes, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
