Babylon Town board member Lindsay Henry was charged Wednesday with beating his girlfriend in a domestic incident.
Henry, 54, of Oak Beach, pleaded not guilty to third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, in First District Court in Central Islip, his attorney said. He was allowed to go free without bail.
“I have nothing to say,” Henry said outside a courtroom on Wednesday.
“During a domestic dispute, the victim suffered a physical injury on Sept. 10,” said Suffolk County Assistant Police Commissioner Justin Meyers. “Henry surrendered himself to the First Precinct on Sept. 12. He was held overnight.”
Henry, a lawyer, is the son of former Suffolk District Attorney Patrick Henry and the brother of District Court Judge Jennifer Henry.
Defense attorney George Duncan of Central Islip said his client is innocent. “He’s a loving, caring father. He’s a good family man. He has the full support of his friends and family in this matter,” Duncan said. “The complainant had indicated to police she did not want him arrested. I’m confident that after a thorough investigation by the district attorney’s office, the charges will be dismissed.”
