Former State House Representative Found Guilty Of Simple Assault

A Lenoir Country judge found a former politician guilty of simple assault, according to the Kinston Free Press.

Van Braxton of Lenoir County was charged after Ray Wiley said Braxton shoved him in a heated argument over Braxton's wife and a campaign sign on election day in November 2010. Braxton, a Democrat, did not win his re-election bid for North Carolina State House representative.

If Braxton avoids future run-ins with the law, he will not be forced to serve any time.
