WEST COVINA, Calif. (AP) — State Assemblyman Roger Hernandez won't face criminal charges over accusations that he abused a former girlfriend.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Los Angeles County prosecutors announced Wednesday that there was insufficient evidence to back up the claims of domestic violence.
Hernandez's former lover, Carolina Taillon, claimed the West Covina Democrat assaulted her on two occasions last July. She didn't report the accusations to police until months after the alleged assaults.
A prosecutor says there was no independent witness to confirm the alleged attacks.
Hernandez had denied the accusations and others that are contained in a lawsuit filed by Taillon.
