DA Reviewing Complaint About LA Councilman's Two Marriages

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office is reviewing a complaint filed over City Councilman Curren Price's two marriages, it was reported Wednesday.

Greg Risling, a spokesman for District Attorney Jackie Lacey, told the Los Angeles Times that investigators are reviewing the filing. He would not say who lodged the complaint or when it was filed.

Price married Lynn Suzette Green in 1981 in Virginia. L.A. County Superior Court records show that Price's 2011 divorce filing was never finalized, according to The Times.

The councilman says he is currently married to Del Richardson.

A campaign spokesman for Price said earlier this month that the councilman was operating on the belief that his divorce was final and is now seeking to get the issue resolved.

News of Price's two marriages broke days before the councilman was up for reelection in his Council District 9, which includes parts of South L.A. and downtown. He won the March 7 election with 63 percent of the vote, avoiding a runoff.
