Kentucky Republican Rep Indicted For Assaulting, Strangling Woman

Kentucky state representative Robert Goforth's political career is in shambles, and Democrats are urging his ouster.

The Republican was indicted by a grand jury Friday on one count of first-degree strangulation and one count of assault in the fourth degree.

Newser reports Goforth was arrested and released on bail in April after a woman told police he had hit her and strangled her with an ethernet cable.

In 2019, Goforth helped pass a law to make it easier to prosecute strangulation as a felony.
