Attorneys file for tentative trial date for former Correia Chief of Staff

BOSTON, Mass. (WLNE) – Geneva Andrade, former Chief of Staff to ex-Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia, may have a court date soon.

The Massachusetts District Attorney’s Office confirmed Andrade’s attorney, along with Assistant U.S. Attorneys Zachary Hafer and David Tobin asked for a tentative trial date of Dec. 6.

“No definitive alternative resolution for this matter has been reached, so we respectfully request that a trial commence on or around Dec. 6,” the filing read, according to the DA’s office.

This comes after a judge rejected her guilty plea in June, which would have allowed her to avoid jail time.

Andrade is facing six charges, including extortion and bribery. She did not take the stand during Correia’s four-week trial.
