Al.com: Rep. Terri Sewell critical of dismissal of battery charge against Judge Mark Fuller
U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell is concerned that the dismissal of a misdemeanor battery charge against U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller sends the wrong message about domestic violence.
"I am deeply disturbed that the charges against Judge Mark Fuller have been dismissed," Sewell, D-Birmingham, said in a press release Tuesday.
A judge dropped the battery charge against Fuller this month after he completed a pre-trial diversion program that included a 24-week domestic violence counseling program. His record was also expunged.
