On March 23, 2009, a grand jury indicted Monserrate on three felony and three misdemeanor charges, in connection with a December 19, 2008 injury to his girlfriend. He was convicted on October 15, 2009 of one count of misdemeanor assault, and acquitted of two counts of felony assault and one other count of misdemeanor assault. He was later sentenced to three years probation, 250 hours of community service, and one year of domestic abuse counseling. A committee of the State Senate made disciplinary recommendations to the entire Senate for his censure or expulsion. The State Senate voted to expel Monserrate. » Read more on Wikipedia.org
