White Plains mayor sits down for exclusive interview with News 12
White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley sat down with News 12 for an exclusive interview following his conviction in a domestic-abuse trial.
Bradley was convicted on five charges stemming from domestic-abuse incidents early last year involving his wife, Fumiko Bradley.
He has consistently denied the charges and said his wife lied.
"The most painful moment was sitting in trial and hearing testimony that wasn't true," says Bradley, "I know the truth...the truth is in my heart. Candidly [Fumiko] knows the truth and we will live with that."
When asked about how he felt when he heard the word guilty come from the judge, he said, "I was very upset. Who wouldn't be? Because I know I'm innocent and I live with that every day."
Bradley has vowed to appeal the conviction. His political future is now in jeopardy, however, including a campaign to have him resign.
The mayor faces up to one year in jail when he is sentenced in March.
