Convicted Of Striking Ex-Fiancé

"A Republican candidate running for the Arizona House of Representatives in north Phoenix has a conviction stemming from a domestic violence incident.
 
Christian Lamar, 37, is one of four Republicans seeking the nomination for the House in Legislative District 2. He was convicted of assault against his then-fiancé in Phoenix in 2015.
 
The two Republicans who receive the most will move on to the general election in November.
 
As part of his conviction, Lamar had to fulfill various conditions set by the municipal court of Phoenix and served one day in confinement.
 
Lamar maintains his innocence, despite three courts upholding the conviction. He also sued the officer on duty that night, the Phoenix Police Department, the city and other departments over the arrest. The case was dismissed, however.
 
Lamar’s domestic assault case
 
Lamar was charged with domestic assault after his then fiancé called the police, accusing him of pushing her and hitting her in the face. The incident occurred on a September morning in 2015 in Phoenix, after the two had had an argument at a casino and returned separately to Lamar's apartment. His ex-fiancé went to the apartment to return his phone, as she stated in a 911 call. Both were intoxicated, per police.

What the records show
 
On Sept. 27, 2015, a domestic violence complaint was filed that early morning against Lamar by his ex-fiancé, after the officer who responded noticed a mark on her face and the victim said Lamar punched her, per police records and the officer's testimony in court.
 
The next month the Phoenix Municipal Court convicted him, stating that “the defendant intentionally or knowingly caused physical injury to another, a Class 1 misdemeanor” in violation of the law.
 
He was fined, served one day in jail with four days suspended and was ordered to serve 11 months of probation. He also had to undergo counseling, enroll in a screening program and was barred from having any contact, invited or not, with the victim, nor “harm, threaten or harass” his ex-fiancé. 
 
In November 2018, Lamar appealed to set aside the judgment, stating that he had “completed all the requirements of the sentence, I have had NO further contact with the opposing party, and NO re-occurrences of such charge or offense.” His application was granted and the judgment was set aside. 
 
Two years prior to that, Lamar also filed a civil rights lawsuit against the officer on duty that night, the Phoenix Police Department, the city of Phoenix and others, claiming his civil rights were violated by the arrest. He sought $7 million in damages, but the case was dismissed by a federal judge."
