Although the former state rep still has a couple of steps before he's actually free, including getting fitted for a GPS bracelet, the Herald reports.

Ed. question: The Herald refers to the "co-ed" he attacked. Does anybody besides Herald writers actually say "co-ed" anymore?

The Bay State Banner waxes outraged about the recent House vote to eject state Rep. Carlos Henriquez following his conviction on a couple of domestic-violence charges stemming from what the Banner calls "an unseemly but private matter:"

Clearly, America has two serious social problems: the physical abuse of women and the unjust imprisonment of black men. Apparently, [Judge Michele] Hogan believes that intensifying injustice to black men benefits the cause of abused women. And, in a blatant appeal for the women’s vote, politicians have crassly supported Henriquez’s removal from office.

Henriquez makes his case

Henriquez makes his case to the House.

The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly today to expel convicted state Rep. Carlos Henriquez of Dorchester.

In a speech to his now former colleagues, Henriquez insisted he was innocent and never attacked the woman who claimed he did in a Zipcar.

In speeches before the vote, members of the House Ethics Committee alternated between saying a jury begged to differ but that even if they believed him, he would be unable to fulfill his duties as a representative while in his six-month sentence.

The incumbent Roxbury city councilor spent Tuesday roaming his district with four security guards, one packing heat, opponent Carlos Henriquez charges:

I'm concerned that the councilor feels the need for security to travel the district which he represents on election day. Every night teens and mothers in my neighborhood travel alone. Some with their children to bus stops with no sense of security. I wonder how they feel. ... We are working to teach young men in the community that they don't need to have guns or travel with a gang for safety. But if the sitting City Councilor feels he needs someone with a gun with him to travel Roxbury, Dorchester and the South End, then what is he saying about the community he represents.
