A former California state assemblyman has denied allegations of child endangerment and other crimes after he was arrested on March 12. The man, who was arrested under suspicion of domestic violence, said he has been unfairly accused. Although officers cannot release information about the victim, the defendant claims that he knows the complainant is his wife, and he said she lied about the incident. So far, no formal charges have been filed in the incident.
A California religious leader who has been accused of bombing his ex-girlfriend's home claims that he was not involved in the attack. News reports show that the man is accused of a series of attacks against the woman; she had reportedly sought and received a restraining order against the pastor of the Fellowship Baptist Church. The defendant in the case says he has been falsely implicated in the firebombing, which occurred as six other people were inside the victim's home.
