Amongst many other grievances he's a wife-beater too:
"Another public spectacle"? Nah, only Republicans gave to worry about that, even if they're small-time like Vito Fossella.
CONCORD, N.H.—Former congressional candidate Gary Dodds, who was arrested this week for allegedly violating his bail conditions, will be released from jail but subject to 45 days of electronic monitoring while he appeals his conviction stemming from a crash two years ago.
Dodds was convicted in February of falsifying evidence, creating a false public alarm and leaving the scene of an April 2006 crash that prosecutors allege he staged to boost his faltering campaign. He was sentenced to 20 days in jail and a year of home confinement but was out on bail when he was arrested Tuesday morning after his wife reported that he had been acting irrationally, moved out of their Rye home and thrown her to the floor during an argument.
A hearing was scheduled for Thursday to set new bail conditions, but an agreement was reached Wednesday, said defense lawyer J.P. Nadeau.
"It was negotiated. His main concern was for his wife and his children and himself not to have to go through another public spectacle," Nadeau said.
