Hiram Monserrate to Stand Trial September 14


Hiram Monserrate, one of the two rebel senators who threw Albany into chaos this summer, will stand trial on September 14 for slashing his girlfriend in the face with a broken glass. Both he and she say the incident was an accident, but prosecutors who have seen the videotape of him chasing her out of the house and yanking her around as she tries to ring neighbors' doorbells in terror still don't believe them for some reason.
