January 12, 2015 — Justine Herring, the Colorado Springs mayoral hopeful charged earlier this month in a laundry list of crimes including accusations she pointed a rifle at a man, was arrested again Monday on charges of assault and violating a protection order.

Police say Herring, 48, was involved in a verbal altercation with her common-law husband at the couple's home on the 600 block Glen Eyrie Circle at about 8 AM.

"During the verbal altercation, Herring threw a large metal pipe at her common-law husband, striking him in the hand and causing a minor injury," police said. "Herring then threw an object at her common-law husband as he left the residence."

Justine Herring had been ordered to stay away from the home. Her common-law husband did not require medical attention.

Herring was charged in Monday's arrest with second-degree assault and violation of a mandatory protection order. The mayoral hopeful was, once again, booked into the El Paso County Jail.

Records show Justine Herring has a criminal history of misdemeanor offenses, including theft, driving under the influence, as well as domestic violence. The mayoral candidate has been arrested several times prior to 2015 and she's been involved in a half-dozen protection orders.

May 2012 —Ms. Herring was cited for misdemeanor theft and trespass in El Paso County. She pled guilty to the theft charge and was given a deferred judgment that she completed in March 2013, according to court records. A deferred sentence involves a guilty plea but is supposed to allow a defendant to clear their record if they complete the conditions of their sentence. However, as noted here, the faux conviction still shows in public records.

February 2012 —Justine Herring was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI), careless driving, and having an open alcoholic beverage container in her vehicle. She pled guilty to the DUI and was again given a deferred sentence, court records state.

August 2009 —She was arrested in Colorado Springs for misdemeanor assault in a domestic violence incident. The district attorney dismissed the case, court records state.

Restraining orders —Justine Herring has been involved in six protection orders, including four that were filed in the past five years. Court records show Herring filed two protection orders against men and two against women. Two women filed protection orders against her.

She also pled guilty to violating a protection order in 2010 and was sentenced to 50 hours of community service and 12 months of probation, court records show.

The correlation of this insane behavior with her mid-40's age suggests her problems are related to perimenopause.

Her campaign for mayor is, perhaps, a reflection of the state of feminist politics in Colorado Springs and El Paso County. We feel confident that TESSA supports her campaign.
