Former TV newsman is cleared of all charges in domestic incident

Life is full of difficult situations and sometimes those situations bring out the worst in people. Unfortunately, it is in those times that some people make very poor decisions and end up dong things they regret, including sometimes committing crimes. However, just because a person in Stamford makes a mistake, that doesn’t mean he or she can’t be forgiven and move forward from that mistake.

A former TV anchorman has been cleared of all charges in an alleged choking incident involving his wife last year. According to reports, WCBS-TV anchor Rob Morrison was accused of choking his wife with both hands during a domestic dispute early in 2013 at the couple’s home in Darien. Mr. Morrison decided to quit his high-paying job before he was fired.

Although he denied that he ever strangled his wife, Mr. Morrison pleaded guilty to charges of threatening and disorderly conduct. According to Mr. Morrison’s attorney he was able to withdraw his earlier plea because he completed a domestic violence program. He has now been cleared of all criminal charges and he and his wife are moving forward.

This case shows that even though a person pleads guilty to a crime, in some cases, that plea can be wiped clean. Just because you have been charged with a crime that does not mean you are guilty. Therefore, if you have been arrested for any type of crime in the Fairfield County area, then you should probably meet with an experienced criminal defense attorney to get the help you need as soon as possible.
