The Carole Swan fraud trial

Former Chelsea Selectwoman Carole Swan was on trial in U.S. District Court accused of 10 criminal charges:

• Five counts of tax fraud and false statements for income tax years 2006-2010 for allegedly failing to report and pay tax on more than $600,000 in income. Maximum penalty on each count is 3 years in prison and $250,000 fine. She was convicted on all five counts.

• Four counts of false statements to obtain federal workers' compensation between August 2008 and May 2011. Maximum penalty on each count is five years in prison, $250,000 fine and restitution. She was convicted of defrauding the program in 2008 and 2010; she was acquitted on the other two charges.

• One count of fraud on a program receiving federal funds for allegedly billing the Town of Chelsea $130,000 for a $58,000 culvert for Windsor Road repairs. The federal government was seeking forfeiture of $396,880, the full cost of the 2007 project. The maximum penalty is 10 years in prison, $250,000 fine, restitution and forfeiture. She was acquitted on that charge.
