Trapasso To Be Sentenced In November

BOSTON -- A former employee in state Auditor Joseph DeNucci's office has been convicted of taking thousands of dollars in bribes from people in exchange for reinstating their suspended driver's licenses.

Lawrence Trapasso, of Worcester, was found guilty Wednesday on three counts of bribery and one count of larceny over $250, but was acquitted of one count of attempted extortion.

The allegations became public when the lawyer for a man convicted of vehicular manslaughter filed court documents saying his client bribed Trapasso, an administrative staff assistant, with nearly $15,000. Attorney General Martha Coakley said two other people paid Trapasso a total of $6,500 to get their suspended licenses back.
Trapasso will be sentenced Nov. 10. His attorney did not immediately return a call for comment.
