Charles Lightbody, pictured right here, also as two others are accused of conspiring to cover Lightbody's ownership stake in land that was sold to Wynn Everett for an Everett, Massachuetts casino.
Three of the first owners of the land now destined to be the Wynn Everett casino in Everett, Massachusetts have been indicted by state and authorities that are federal. They allege that the men defrauded Wynn Resorts and lied to state regulators by hiding the identification of their partners. The indictment shouldn't have an impact on Wynn's winning bid to build the $1.6 billion resort.
Lightbody Ownership Stake Concealed
According towards the federal indictment, three owners regarding the land went of the method to cover the fact up that Charles Lightbody, a known Mafia associate and a convicted felon, was one of many lovers whom owned the land. They were said to have feared (and perhaps rightly so) that the Wynn bid for the only Greater Boston-area casino license could possibly be discounted if Lightbody was recognized to be a part of the land sale.
The three defendants each face federal fraud charges that could land all of them with up to 20 years of jail time. State fraud charges could carry another five also years in jail for each man. Lightbody has been held without bail until a hearing next week, although the other two landowners, Anthony Gattineri and Dustin DeNunzio, were released after their very first hearing
