Ex-NYC TV Anchor Pleads Guilty In Threats To Wife

Posted: Updated:

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Former New York TV news anchor Rob Morrison has pleaded guilty to threatening and breach of peace charges stemming from accusations he choked his wife in their Connecticut home in February.
    
Morrison's lawyer tells The Advocate of Stamford (http://bit.ly/13uWeT3 ) that his client's pleas in Stamford Superior Court on Wednesday could clear the charges from his record if he completes two family violence programs. Attorney Robert Skovgaard says his client does not want to prolong the case.
    
Morrison is married to Ashley Morrison, also a TV reporter. The incident happened at their Darien home.
    
Skovgaard said Morrison will not be prosecuted by the state on a strangulation charge if he completes the programs.
    
Skovgaard did not immediately return a call on Thursday and a spokesman for state prosecutors did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
