House candidate addresses criminal past

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -
A state house candidate is asking voters to look past his criminal history.
North Carolina House District 9 candidate Ashley Bleau held a press conference today claiming in the late 90's, he made a split second decision to fight a man he says groped his fiancee.

Bleau plead guilty in 1999 to misdemeanor assault inflicting serious injury.

He also received marijuana possession and DWI charges in 1996 and 2004.

Bleau says he's matured since those criminal charges.
"I can identify with the majority of people," Bleau said. "I am human. most of all. I am someone that has no problem. Many times iI could have gotten this expunge, but it's me. I believe in character. I believe in standing up for rights. I'm not trying to hide anything."

Voters will decide whether to look past those criminal charges or not in the May 6 primary.
