(Bad) luck of the draw: Anguilla stuck with another major DUIMay 4th, 2012 at 11:40 am by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes
Former State Rep. Fausto Anguilla has the luck of the draw – and not in a good way.
Anguilla, a lawyer and justice of the peace in Bristol County, was called to the Bristol police station overnight to serve as a bail commissioner for Congressman David Cicilline’s brother, John, after he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
Just five weeks ago, Anguilla found himself at the neighboring Barrington police station serving as the bail commissioner in another politically tinged DUI case: Senate Majority Leader Dominick Ruggerio’s.
There’s a reason for that – and it’s not what you might think.
The five bail commissioners in Bristol County operate on a five-week rotation, and a copy of the schedule obtained by WPRI.com shows Anguilla was assigned to cover the weeks beginning March 26 – two days before Ruggerio’s arrest – and April 30, which was Monday. That’s why the former lawmaker got the calls.
