Ruling in hospital graft case appealed

Boston Globe, December 4, 2007
A judge's instructions to a jury in a federal corruption case were too broad and allowed two former hospital executives to be convicted of conduct that was not illegal, according to an argument in appeals court. Robert Urciuoli, former president and chief executive of Roger Williams Medical Center in Providence, RI, was convicted last year, along with the former vice president, of paying a state senator to advance the hospital's agenda at the Statehouse.
