    Former Mass. Senator Pleads Not Guilty to 113 Charges

    Former Massachusetts state Sen. Brian Joyce was arrested at his Westport home shortly before sunrise Friday, hours before authorities unsealed a 113-count indictment stemming from a two-year investigation that charges him with racketeering, extortion, wire fraud and money laundering.

    An accountant has been convicted by a federal grand jury of conspiring with a former state senator to defraud the IRS.

    Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling says 67-year-old John Nardozzi, of Waltham, was convicted Wednesday of defrauding the IRS of approximately $600,000.

    Lelling says Nardozzi manipulated income that should've been reported on former state Sen. Brian Joyce's corporate tax return, and falsely created a fund for Joyce and his wife to defer income taxes.

    Joyce was found dead at his Westport home last year. The medical examiner determined the 56-year-old died from an overdose of a medication commonly used to treat insomnia.
