Ex-Police Commissioner in South Hackensack Sees Domestic Violence Charges Dropped
The man who previously served as police commissioner in South Hackensack no longer faces domestic violence charges after his wife requested that the charges be dismissed.
The suspect is a 52-year-old South Hackensack resident. He was replaced as the South Hackensack Township police commissioner in February 2017.
The suspect was arrested in January 2017 and accused of attacking his wife. According to officials, the suspect knocked his wife to the ground and caused injuries to her arms and her knees.
However, a court ultimately dismissed the restraining order charges after the suspect’s wife requested that they be dropped.
In NJ, dismissal of a restraining order does not occur automatically when an alleged victim asks for the dismissal. Rather, the victim must appear in court and answer questions from a judge to ensure that she is not being pressured to drop the domestic violence charges.
