A second superseding indictment was issued by federal prosecutors on Thursday in Boston.
Former Chief of Staff and Campaign Manager Gen Andrade has now been named in an indictment alleging she bribed Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia II in order to keep her position as Chief of Staff.
Andrade now also faces a count of lying to federal investigators who interviewed her in Boston in December of last year. This was revealed from statements by ‘marijuana vendor #4.’
She has also told federal investigators that the $22,800 she allegedly gave Correia in order to maintain her position as Chief of Staff was a loan.
In total, Andrade faces six federal counts after making a pair of appearances in federal court. That includes September 6 when Correia was arrested for a second time, as her name is now attached with Correia’s on counts 20-23 involving extortion conspiracy and extortion aiding and abetting.
Andrade will be arraigned on October 2nd in the Moakley Federal Courthouse in the Seaport District in downtown Boston. It begins at 11 a.m in courtroom 23.
