Faith-based recovery program leader has criminal past

Rivera in 2014 admitted to an ethics violation and paid a $5,000 fine to the Massachusetts Ethics Commission. Public records note he admitted breaking state law that prohibits a municipal employee from using their official position to secure "unwarranted privileges" of "substantial value" not available to others. The commission published that Rivera was urban affairs liaison and special assistant to the superintendent of the Lawrence (Mass.) School Department when he used a school database to access non-public information.
