Lawyer maintains former Nashua alderman is innocent
“We are going to do everything we can to defend her, and we look forward to demonstrating that she is innocent of these charges,” attorney Joe Fricano said Friday at the Hillsborough County Superior Court.
A bail hearing will likely be scheduled in the near future to address Vitale’s bail, according to Fricano, who stressed that his client has no criminal history.
According to Fricano, Vitale is very concerned about the allegations, and did not anticipate the indictments that were recently handed up by a Hillsborough County Superior Court grand jury.
Since being indicted, Vitale, 54, of 8 Massasoit Rd., has taken a leave of absence from her position on the Nashua Zoning Board of Adjustment where she currently sits as an alternate member.
Police allege that Vitale, sometime between Nov. 27, 2013 and Feb. 19, 2014, conspired with Ernesto Rivera, 48, and Rene Lavoie, 52, to persuade Elvira Kersey to recant her statement in an assault case against Rivera.
Rivera is accused of assaulting two women, including Kersey, during a dispute last August at a Nashua restaurant that resulted in six domestic violence assault charges.
Lavoie has also been indicted on two counts of conspiracy to witness tampering for the same incident, says court documents.
