WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - After a conviction and a reversal, the former mayor of White Plains, New York is being retried on a domestic violence charge.
Tuesday's opening arguments in the White Plains trial of Adam Bradley touched on the Democrat's acrimonious relationship with his wife as their marriage unraveled.
Bradley was mayor of White Plains when he was convicted in 2010 of attempting to assault his wife and harassment. The former state assemblyman had been considered a politician on the rise.
He resigned in 2011, then was sentenced to three years of probation.
An appeals court overturned the conviction last year.
Bradley's first trial was a non-jury trial. He decided on a jury for the retrial, and one was chosen Monday.
