Federal prosecutors last week indicted former Massachusetts House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi on conspiracy charges, alleging that he added spending initiatives to legislation, including to a bond bill, with allies gaining contracts financed through such allocations.

Also charged with wire and mail fraud in the eight-count indictment are three associates: Joseph Lally, owner of Montvale Solutions LLC, which sold software to state entities, and long-time DiMasi friends Richard McDonough and Richard Vitale. McDonough worked as a lobbyist for Montvale while Vitale served as a consultant.
