Washington State Representative Geoff Simpson, who recently lost his battle for reelection against Republican Mark Hargrove by 13 points, has settled his domestic abuse charge out of court just days after the election took place.

According to the Seattle City Attorney’s Office and the Seattle Times, Simpson will have all charges dismissed in two years if he follows the rules of his probation, which includes not breaking the law, not possessing weapons, and not coming into contact with his ex-wife. In addition, he will be asked to participate in counseling regarding domestic violence and abuse. Under the agreement, Simpson does not have to admit guilt.

The domestic violence incident occurred last year, when both Simpson and his ex-wife Kathy Simpson were visiting their daughter at a Seattle hospital following a procedure. Allegedly, Simpson pushed his wife out of the way to enter the room.
