State Senator Troy Brown got some good news. The woman he smacked around in a New Orleans hotel after the Bayou Classic wants to drop the charges against him.
From The Times-Picayune:
The woman who accused state Sen. Troy Brown, D-Geismar, of punching her in the face at a New Orleans hotel last year has filed a court document asking for the charge to be dropped.
The 41-year-old woman, who has been described in police records as Brown’s “side friend” of more than 10 years, filed an affidavit Wednesday (Aug. 24). The document said she does not wish to prosecute the charge of simple battery against Brown.
“After careful consideration, she believes that the dismissal of the charge is in the best interest of all parties involved,” the document says, adding that she was not coerced or promised anything in exchange for the request.
The final decision to whether or not charges will be dropped is with Orleans Parish District Attorney. If charges aren’t dropped, Brown will face trial on September 14th.
Troy Brown needs to go away regardless of not he goes on trial. The Louisiana Senate should have no room for a “man” who beats up women.
