Domestic violence charges dismissed against state Sen. Sepulveda

After being accused of assaulting his wife earlier this year, the Bronx District Attorney’s Office announced Monday that charges were dropped against Democrat New York State Sen. Luis Sepulveda.

According to Patrice O’Shaughnessy, director of communications for the Office of the Bronx District Attorney, the DA dismissed the case because it was unable to meet the burden of proof and Sepulveda’s estranged wife, Elizabeth, 40, no longer wished to testify against her husband.
