Rep. Carlos Henriquez

After a recent conviction of assaulting an Arlington woman, State Rep. Carlos Henriquez from Dorchester will be serving six months in jail.  In response, Mayor Walsh released the following statement:

This is a sad day for the Fifth Suffolk District.

A jury has convicted Rep. Henriquez and a judge has sentenced him to serve jail time. In light of this, I would encourage Rep. Henriquez to resign, in the best interests of the constituents he represents.

Violence against women is an epidemic, and is totally and universally unacceptable. This case shines a spotlight on something that plagues our nation every single day. Nearly one quarter of women in this country have experienced violence; Boston is no exception to these startling facts.

Back in July of 2012, Henriquez was charged with choking and punching a woman he was dating after she refused to have sex with him.

    It’s amazing to me that there is even a question as to whether or not he will resign.
