Attemped Assault Conviction for Former NY1 Reporter Overturned in Appeals Court

The attempted assault conviction for former NY1 political reporter Dominic Carter has been overturned in the New York appeals court.

The court ruled yesterday that Carter’s case should never have gone to trial. He served 19 days out of a 30-day sentence in jail for a 2009 attempted assault conviction on his wife.

“Dominic is elated that justice has finally been done and his name cleared,” Carter’s lawyer, Julia Kuan, told The New York Daily News. “He is looking forward to resuming his career in journalism.”

Carter lost his job at NY1 as a result of the trial. He returned to television last month as a guest on “The Richard French Show,” a show on New York regional channel RNN.
