Hiram video is extremely incriminating
From the NY Times:
State Senator Hiram Monserrate dragged his bleeding companion through the lobby of a Queens building so violently last Dec. 19 that she dropped a towel pressed to her face, a security video played on Monday in court showed.
The fleeting and grainy images, crucial evidence for the prosecution in the senator’s domestic violence trial in State Supreme Court in Queens, also show Mr. Monserrate yanking the woman, Karla Giraldo, down the stairs and away from a neighbor’s door where, prosecutors say, she was ringing the bell for help.
