A state lawmaker accused of shoving his ex-wife has entered an agreement that would dismiss a gross misdemeanor assault charge after two years of probation.
A spokeswoman for Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes tells Seattlepi.com that Rep. Geoff Simpson of Covington entered into a stipulated-order of continuance Monday.
Under the agreement, the case is continued for two years while Simpson is on probation. The misdemeanor charge is dismissed if he follows probation conditions.
Simpson was charged July 26. He lost to Republican challenger Mark Hargrove in the Nov. 2 election.
