City of Pittsburgh: City Council candidate confirms legal problems

Saturday, April 17, 1999

By Timothy McNulty, Post-Gazette Staff Writer

Kevin Quigley of Brighton Heights, the endorsed Democratic candidate for the District 1 Pittsburgh City Council seat, has been ordered twice by judges to stay away from his wives after they said he punched them.

Also, Quigley confirmed in an interview that he has been arrested three times, including twice for assault, but said he was not convicted of any crimes.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette performed additional background checks on candidates for the seat after publishing a story on the District 1 race earlier this month. That April 5 story said a "protection from abuse" order in Family Division court records showed Quigley, 35, a city Public Works laborer, was ordered by a Common Pleas judge in September 1996 to stay away from his current wife for six months.

Additional information on Quigley surfaced after the Post-Gazette's article on Quigley's PFA and the District 1 race ran in the April 5 editions.

Another PFA in Family Division court records showed Judge David Cashman ordered Quigley to stay away from his then-wife for a year, until February 1990.

Quigley has said in interviews that he did not harm either wife.

In his conversation with the Post-Gazette, Quigley also said he was arrested in August 1998 on an assault charge. He said he was arrested twice in 1989, once on a charge of public drunkenness and another time on an assault charge. Background checks of the other three candidates for the District 1 Pittsburgh City Council seat showed no records of arrests, convictions or protection from abuse orders.
