SALEM, Mass. (AP) - A former official in two Massachusetts towns has pleaded guilty to destroying public records and rigging bids for municipal contracts toward favored contractors.

The Daily Item of Lynn (https://bit.ly/2twDOVL ) reports that 70-year-old Andrew Bisignani was sentenced Thursday in Salem Superior Court to two years of probation with six months under house arrest.

He will begin the home confinement sentence in January, as he is already under house arrest for tax evasion until that time.

Bisignani, formerly Saugus’ town manager and Nahant’s town administrator, will also have to pay $600,000 in fines.

In a statement, he says his objective is to now move forward, “unencumbered by this legal matter.” Bisignani apologized for the decisions he made, saying he did not always act in the best interest of the public.
