Charges Re-instated for Marrying Mayor

A judge reinstated criminal charges Wednesday against a small-town mayor who got in trouble for marrying a series of gay couples last year.
Attorney Joshua Rosenkranz said no decision had been made yet on whether to appeal, but added that "I know that Jason West is chomping at the bit to face a jury of his peers."

New Paltz Village Mayor Jason West helped ignite heated arguements last February when he married about two dozen same-sex couples. West, 27, was quickly hit with 24 misdemeanor counts.
