DA vows to throw the book at pop singer charged with battery
SANTO DOMINGO.- The National District prosecutor announced Monday she’ll request popular singer Antonio Peter de la Rosa’s (Omega) incarceration this afternoon and warned she’ll continue to be tough against aggressors of women even if they are show business figures.
Yeni B. Reynoso said Omega’s behavior is of repeated violence and should be sent to prison. "We’re talking about a person who’s been processed more than three times for the same offense and the District Attorney must respond to society taking into account the incidents’ special characteristics."
She said she’ll motion the court for de la Rosa’s incarceration while the investigation concludes, and this time not in a prison where he feels he’s on vacation.
The official said regardless if it’s a businessperson, politicians or artist all those accused of violence against women will be subjected to the same treatment.
