Former Star Reporter in New York Found Guilty of Misdemeanor Attempted Assault

Nov 23, 2009  •  Post A Comment

A former star NY1 political reporter was found guilty on Friday of misdemeanor attempted assault for beating his wife during an argument, the New York Times reports.

Dominic Carter was convicted after the judge in the case said he didn’t believe Carter’s wife, who changed her story and said it was really a day laborer she couldn’t name who had inflicted the injuries. He was cleared of a third-degree assault charge.

Carter, who took an indefinite leave from his job in October after the charges came to light, faces up to three months in jail and a year’s probation at his January sentencing.
