Domestic Violence Trial
Eliana Lopez wrote an opinion piece that her voice was considered irrelevant and ignored by authorities when a neighbor reported hers and suspended Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s new year’s fight to police.
The wife of San Francisco’s suspended Sheriff, Ross Mirkarimi, was given the green light by a judge on Friday to travel to Venezuela with the couples’ son to visit her ailing father.
San Francisco’s Mayor Lee is reviewing legal documents to help make a decision whether or not to suspend Sheriff Mirkarimi, an ability he has under the city’s charter.
Now that he’s pled guilty in a plea bargain to end his trial, advocate groups for victims of domestic violence gathered on the steps of San Francisco’s City Hall Thursday to urge Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi to resign.
