Former State Rep Gets Probation for Seattle Domestic Violence Case


State Rep. Geoff Simpson (D-47), charged with domestic violence against his ex-wife earlier this year, has agreed to two year’s probation, city attorney Pete Holmes’ office said today. During those two years, Simpson will have to break no laws, avoid contact with his ex-wife, and go through counseling; if he meets all the terms of the agreement, known as a stipulated order of continuance, the charges will be dismissed.

In sort-of related news, Simpson lost his bid for reelection last week.
