In case you were wondering how things were going on the prosecution of state senator Hiram Monserrate -- busted last year and indicted in March
for attacking his girlfriend with a broken glass -- the answer is: not good. Not only is his trial scheduled for September 14 -- the surveillance video that allegedly "shows Monserrate dragging his screaming girlfriend from the building" the night of the incident, which his defense lawyers tried to downplay
, will be admitted as evidence
. Earlier, sources said that Monserrate "will be convicted by the security video
" -- which allegedly includes scenes of a bleeding Karla Giraldo banging on a neighbor's door, trying to get help. Monserrate says it's all an accident and a misunderstanding, and his lawyers suggested the video was "edited" to make him look bad
. We'll see what a jury thinks.
