Charges Against Spring Valley Mayor In Shoving Incident Dismissed

SPRING VALLEY, N.Y. -- Spring Valley Mayor Demeza Delhomme said he is happy the charges against him for allegedly shoving the town lawyer have been dismissed and he is ready to move on.

"This was all a big misunderstanding and not something that I would ever do," said Delhomme. "It's time to move forward and work for the good of the village."

Delhomme, who had been charged with harassment, was accused of shoving Larry Weissman, a Village Board-appointed special prosecutor, three times on the shoulder and neck during a confrontation in the Village Hall trustee's room on Sept. 13.

The charges were dismissed on Tuesday by  Rockland County District Attorney Thomas P. Zugibe, who said after a thorough review, his office requested a dismissal of the charge in the interests of justice.

"Now I can move ahead and work on the things I was elected to do such as fix the roads, clean up the corruption in town and make the village a better place to live," Delhomme said.
