Arruda rejects state's plea bargain in municipal embezzlement case

July 30, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Rachel Arruda, the former municipal court clerk accused of embezzling nearly $400,000 from the city, rejected the state’s offer of a plea bargain in Superior Court Tuesday, opting to fight the charges in a trial.
In trade for a guilty plea, state prosecutors told Judge Netti Vogel they were prepared to recommend that Arruda be sentenced to 15 years, with no more than 18 months in prison and the balance suspended with probation. In addition, she would have had to make full restitution to the city within 14 years.
