WASHINGTON - Bernard Joseph Tully, a former Massachusetts state senator, has pleaded guilty for devising a scheme to defraud a Boston-area businessman out of approximately $18,000 by falsely representing that Tully and his co-conspirator were using the funds to bribe public officials.
Unbeknownst to Tully, the businessman reported Tully’s overtures to the FBI.
The guilty plea was announced by Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz for the District of Massachusetts and Richard DesLauriers, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Boston Field Office.
Tully, 84, of Dracut, Mass., pleaded guilty yesterday before U.S. District Judge Patti B. Saris to one count of wire fraud.
According to court documents, Tully formerly served as the city manager for Lowell, Mass., from approximately 1979 to 1987.
Prior to serving as city manager, Tully was a state senator representing Lowell and other areas.
