Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, 50, faces one count each of domestic violence battery, child endangerment and dissuading a witness for a New Years Eve incident with his wife as reported by a neighbor.  Sheriff Mirkarimi is the newly elected sheriff of San Franciso.

“No one is above the law,” Gascón said. “Whether this was the elected sheriff or any other San Francisco resident, this type of behavior is inexcusable, criminal and will be prosecuted.”

The sheriff’s wife has stated that the allegations are false and that she is standing by her husband and they will prove that the allegations are false, despite the neighbors statement that she has texts and a photo from Ms. Mirkarimi which show bruises.
