Assem­bly­woman charged with beat­ing teenage son

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - STATE NEWS -

Pros­e­cu­tors say a state assem­bly woman from Brooklyn is fac­ing charges she beat her 13-year-old son with a broom­stick.

Po­lice ar­rested Diana Richard­son on Satur­day after the teen told them that his mother caused an abra­sion on his arm by strik­ing him dur­ing a dis­pute in their home.

A crim­i­nal com­plaint charges Richard­son with as­sault, men­ac­ing and other counts. Pros­e­cu­tors said Sunday that she was re­leased with­out bail.

There was no im­me­di­ate re­sponse to a mes­sage left with the politi­cian’s press con­tact.

The 33-year-old Richard­son won a spe­cial elec­tion in May 2015 on the Work­ing Fam­i­lies ticket to rep­re­sent Brooklyn’s 43rd Assem­bly Dis­trict. She’s run­ning un­op­posed for a sec­ond term on Tues­day.
