Former WCBS New York anchor Rob Morrison pleaded guilty today on two of three charges regarding an incident this past February with his wife, CBS MoneyWatch anchor Ashley Morrison.
Morrison pleaded guilty on second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct after agreeing with Judge Gary White’s offer to participate in a Family Violence Education Program, the Stamford Superior Court clerk’s office confirmed.
The anchor did not enter a plea for the felony strangulation charge. Morrison has said he did not choke his wife. Darien Police also claim he threatened to kill his wife while at police headquarters, which Morrison also refutes.
Morrison declined to comment, and deferred to his attorney, Robert Skovgaard, who did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Morrison earlier berated The Times for calling his lawyer, saying he gets charged $1,000 per phone call. He later told other news outlets he does not get charged that amount.
His next court date is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 14.
