February 14, 2012

WOONSOCKET — A 46-year-old city man faces a mandatory minimum of five years in federal prison after pleading guilty yesterday to federal charges of selling cocaine from an auto repair business in the city.
Pablo Marino Chala, 46, formerly of 89 Bourdon Boulevard, also faces at least four years of supervised release when he is sentenced in May, U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha said.
Chala pled guilty in U.S. District Court Tuesday to one count of distributing 28 or more grams of crack cocaine and two counts of distributing crack cocaine.

“What an insult to the American people,” Gordon declared at a Statehouse press conference Tuesday. “What an insult to the people of Rhode Island. The people should be inflamed.”
