Criminal assault charges will not be filed against City Councilman Ted R. Moreno, the district attorney's office said Wednesday. Councilman Brett Franklin filed a complaint last month that Moreno had shoved him during a break in the Feb. 17 council meeting after a contentious public hearing.
Deputy Dist. Atty. Sheila Hanson said "there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Moreno intentionally assaulted Mr. Franklin."
