American actor Jeremy London is going to be facing domestic violence charges for the assault on his estranged wife. Back in November Melissa Cunningham had claimed that London had become physically violent during an argument over the custody of their child.
Reports from TMZ say that London’s lawyers have been in contact with the Riverside County District Attorney’s office in California, after authorities have attempted to contact the former Party of Five actor for questioning.
It has been said that prosecutors do have plans to charge London indeed with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence, which does carry a sentence of up to one year in jail if he does get convicted.
London’s spokesperson said:
“The allegation is false and no such abuse occurred. It is unfortunate that the DA’s office has elected to reward Melissa’s malicious behavior and disregard the facts regarding the incident.”
London has previously described Cunningham as,
“a very sick person”.
