Tuesday, St Bernard Parish President David Peralta responded to the restraining order his wife placed against him last week.
According to court documents, Sharon Peralta claims her husband slapped, shoved, handcuffed and raped her. Also, documents show that she has moved out of the couple’s Meraux home and is now living in Orleans Parish.
Louisiana State Police investigated the accusation and turned over the results to the St Bernard District Attorney’s Office.
Tuesday, Peralta released the following statement:
“Unfortunately St. Bernard Parish Government’s policy prohibits me from discussing any matters that are currently in litigation. Also this is a personal matter as well and I would ask that you respect my privacy for the present time.”
David Peralta has not been charged with any crime in connection with the case.
