Domestic violence expenses in opposition to NY Sen. Luis Sepulveda dropped

32

Bronx prosecutors have dismissed home violence expenses in opposition to Bronx state Sen. Luis Sepulveda, The Post has discovered.

The lawmaker’s lawyer, Marvin Raskin, confirmed that the case in opposition to the veteran legislator was dropped and sealed in Bronx Criminal Court on Monday morning.

Sepulveda, 57, had turned himself in to the NYPD in January after his estranged spouse, Elizabeth Sepulveda, 40, accused him of choking her at their West Farms condominium.

Luis Sepulveda, who chaired the Senate Crime Victims, Crime and Corrections Committee, was charged with assault, harassment and felony obstruction of respiration.

He remained free with out bail and repeatedly denied the allegations.

In an e mail Monday, a spokeswoman for the Bronx District Attorney’s Office stated the case was tossed as a result of prosecutors “are unable to meet our burden of proof” and that “the complaining witness no longer wishes to testify.”

Elizabeth Sepulveda didn’t return a name in search of remark.

At the time of his arrest, Luis Sepulveda was working for Bronx borough president. He misplaced the Democratic major in June.
