The Westchester County district attorney's office says former White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley will be retried on counts of attempted assault and harassment.

Bradley was found guilty by a judge in 2010 of attempting to assault his wife by slamming a door on her fingers. He was also convicted of harassment.

His lawyer says the retrial is desperate and unreasonable. But Bradley says he's looking forward to it so his name will be cleared.

Bradley resigned after his conviction.
