PHILADELPHIA (Sept. 7, 2016) – The Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office today released the following statement about the arrest and charging of Walter Weeks for assaulting a fellow delegate during the Democratic National Convention:

Based on what we later learned was an incomplete investigation, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office (DAO) initially declined charges in this case. But, after further investigation by the DAO including a review of additional video and eyewitness testimony, the Office has charged Walter Weeks of Garnet Valley, PA with Indecent Assault as a second degree misdemeanor. Mr. Weeks, who turned himself in to the Philadelphia Police Department’s Special Victim’s Unit today around 4 p.m., is being charged for assaulting a fellow DNC delegate at a hotel in Center City Philadelphia.
