Senator Sepúlveda, who was in custody awaiting arraignment, did not immediately return a phone call and a text message requesting comment.
His lawyer, Marvin Ray Raskin, said the senator had been “the victim of recurring physical violence by his estranged spouse for approximately nine years, a situation he has endured because of the young child they share together.”
“This false accusation is a calculated attempt by a disgruntled party to leverage a divorce settlement from a case she filed in Florida this past November,” he added. “All allegations must be taken seriously and investigated to the full extent of the law…”
