LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Jefferson Circuit Court judge has overturned the assault conviction against jockey Robby Albarado.

Albarado was convicted of assaulting his girlfriend in May 2012.

Judge Brian Edwards ruled on November 12 that a mistrial should have been declared after the prosecution alleged that the relationship with his girlfriend began while Albarado was still married.

The Jefferson County Attorney is deciding whether to appeal the ruling.
