W. Plains mayor confirms divorce proceedings with wifePosted: Updated:
White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley confirmed that he and his wife have both filed for divorce just one month before he's scheduled to stand trial on domestic abuse allegations.
"This is an intensely personal situation that will be handled in the appropriate court of law, where hopefully my family's privacy will be respected," Bradley said in a statement. "In the meantime? I will continue my work on behalf of the people of White Plains."
Bradley has been accused by his wife, Fumiko, of several counts of domestic abuse. He is also facing a witness tampering charge after he allegedly pressured her to drop the charges against him.
The same judge who is handling Bradley's criminal case will also handle the divorce proceedings. The trial in the criminal case is scheduled to begin next month.
