It was a date in court today for White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley who is facing several charges of misdemeanor assault, harassment and witness tampering charges in the alleged domestic abuse of his wife, Fumiko.
Bradley waived his right to a jury trial which means his case will be heard by a judge. Westchester County Judge Susan Capeci set November 8 as the start date for what's expected to be a two day bench trial for the embattled White Plains Mayor.
Bradley's attorney said a bench trial was preferable because it would be both quicker and less complex. Attorney Luis Andrew Penichet said such a trial would involve translaters since Bradley's wife Fumiko is Japanese, and does not speak English well.
