Monserrate Indicted on 6 Counts of Girlfriend-Bashing
In case you were wondering what happened with that assault case on Hiram Monserrate, the state senator who was arrested in December for hitting his girlfriend, who got cold feet afterward but couldn't stop the wheels of justice from turning: he's been indicted by a Queen grand jury for smacking Karla Giraldo with a glass object, with three counts of second-degree assault and three counts of third-degree assault -- all felonies. He faces seven years in prison. Commenters at Queens Crap are already on top of it: "i hope this ass hole gos to jail this girl better, and all the money he took from tully and the others at willets point what a dick go to jail loser and dont bend over."
