Awr Hawkins, Breitbart, February 5, 2014
On January 15th, Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence supporter and Massachusetts state representative Carlos Henriquez (D-5th Suffolk Dist.) was sentenced to six months in jail for punching a woman who refused to have sex with him.
Because Henriquez refused to resign his seat, choosing instead to continue working from behind bars, a state Ethics Committee has recommended Henriquez be expelled from the Massachusetts legislature February 6th.
According to the Boston Herald, 37-year-old Henriquez’s conviction and jail sentence stem from a July 2012 assault in which he held down a woman and punched her for refusing to have sex with him.
