REDWOOD CITY, California -- A diplomat at Japan's consulate in San Francisco has pleaded not guilty to multiple domestic violence charges that include allegedly stabbing his wife with a screwdriver.
Yoshiaki Nagaya, who serves as vice consul in the Consulate-General of Japan, entered his plea May 7 in San Mateo County District Court to 13 counts of domestic violence and three counts of assault with a deadly weapon for the alleged abuse of Yuka Nagaya, his wife of 18 months.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told the San Francisco Chronicle that Nagaya had repeatedly injured his wife starting in January 2011 and allegedly stabbed her, stomped on her, threw her out of their car and knocked out one of her teeth.
Nagaya is out on $350,000 bail and due back in court on June 14.
