Don’t worry, Democrats, he’ll be out of jail in time for the next election cycle.
State Representative Carlos Henriquez was sentenced to serve six months in Middlesex County House of Correction today after he was convicted of charges that he choked and punched an Arlington woman he was dating in July 2012.
A Cambridge District Court jury convicted Henriquez on two assault and battery charges, but acquitted Henriquez, a Dorchester Democrat, of a third assault and battery charge, one count of intimidation of a witness, and one count of larceny under $250.
The victim, Katherine Gonzalves, testified about the events that unfolded on July 8, 2012, and underwent a rigorous cross-examination by Henriquez’s defense attorney, Stephanie Soriano-Mills.
Following the verdict, Judge Michele Hogan expressed concern that Henriquez was not accepting responsibility for the actions the jury convicted him of. Speaking from the bench, she also told him that he should have ended his interactions with Gonzalves early that morning when she told him she was not interested in having intimate relations.
“When a woman tells you she doesn’t want to have sex, she doesn’t want to have sex,’’ Hogan said, adding that she was “very concerned that you’re not remorseful.’’
Why would he be remorseful for basically getting a wrist slap? Oh, and not that anyone in th emedia will mention it, but his mother is an Obama appointee.
