State Rep-Elect Who Resigned Faces Embezzlement Charge

An East Bay state representative-elect who resigned before he was able to take his General Assembly seat is now facing an embezzlement charge. Laufton Ascencao of Bristol, who won the District 68 House seat last year, is due for arraignment in District Court in Providence today, according to his attorney. The Rhode Island State Police says the charge stems from allegations in a state election board report that Ascencao used money for his campaign from the Sierra Club while he worked there as a treasurer. Ascencao resigned after it was discovered that he lied about sending out campaign mailers for town council candidates in Warren.
