Bradley Domestic Abuse Trial Begins
Testimony got underway today in the domestic violence trial of White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley. Before the first witness was called this morning, the judge in the case announced she will not allow testimony from two marriage counselors citing doctor/patient confidentiality.
More than 30 witnesses are expected to take the stand in the trial that's expected to last everal days.
Bradley has been arrested twice since February for alleged physical, verbal and emotional abuse of his wife Fumiko. The two have since filed for divorce.
Lawyers for Bradley have said they plan to prove Fumiko Bradley's claims against the Mayor were baseless and it was she who was the aggressor. Fumiko Bradley is among the witnesses expected to testify.
Bradley faces up to a year in prison on each of the misdemeanor charges he's facing. Legal analysts say a first time conviction in domestic abuse cases rarely results in jailtime.
