    Arrested NH Senator: 'Looking Forward to Telling My Side'

    New Hampshire's senate minority leader, Jeff Woodburn, is facing domestic violence charges.

    (Published Friday, Aug. 3, 2018)

    A New Hampshire state senator who is facing domestic violence allegations has been re-elected.

    Democratic State Sen. Jeff Woodburn, of Whitefield, had no opponent on Tuesday's primary election ballot, but a Randolph woman had launched a write-in campaign for the seat representing a portion of New Hampshire's North Country.

    Woodburn was charged last month with simple assault, domestic violence, criminal mischief and trespassing. After the charges were announced, Woodburn suspended his campaign and stepped aside from his role as Senate minority leader.

    In a Tuesday Facebook post after the results of the primary became known, Woodburn said he suspended his campaign to focus on clearing his name and protecting his family.
