Hus­band happy charges dropped against Dash

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

Pros­e­cu­tors in Tampa, Florida have dropped mis­de­meanor charges of do­mes­tic bat­tery against “Clue­less” star-turned con­ser­va­tive pun­dit Stacey Dash, who was ar­rested last week af­ter an ar­gu­ment with her fourth hus­band, at­tor­ney Jef­frey Marty.

The Pinel­las-Pasco State At­tor­ney’s Of­fice con­cluded that there was “not a crim­i­nal of­fense to pros­e­cute,” As­sis­tant State At­tor­ney Bryan Sara­bia told the Tampa Bay Times.

Marty, whom Dash se­cretly mar­ried in April 2018, cel­e­brated the news on Twit­ter, writ­ing: “To­day, the State At­tor­ney made the right call by de­clin­ing to file charges against my wife, @stacey­dash. She was ar­rested over my ob­jec­tion at the time, but due to the pend­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tion, I waited to com­ment un­til now. We both look for­ward to get­ting this be­hind us.”

The Tampa Bay Times noted that Marty is a former public de­fender who han­dles crim­i­nal de­fense in the lo­cal area. Sara­bia told the news­pa­per that it’s not un­usual for the D.A’s of­fice to drop charges so quickly, and in­sisted that Dash’s celebrity sta­tus had no in­flu­ence over the de­ci­sion.
