Co-anchor of Today in New york, Darlene Rodriguez, was much criticized for backing up with her husband when he was found guilty of an official misconduct. Darlene is married to David Rodriguez who was a New Rochelle police force sergeant. He resigned in the same year (2008) he was found guilty of using authority to have sexual contact with a teenager.
After being convicted of an official misconduct, people expected Darlene to file for a divorce against her husband David. But instead, Darlene was seen supporting her husband throughout the court ordeal, which began from February 2008.

"I'm here to support my husband. I believe in him. I love him. He's innocent 100 percent." Darlene said before the first court hearings. And even after David pleaded guilty to having committed a felony, she stood by her words.
No divorce was filed and not even a separation was contemplated by Darlene. She still leads a seemingly happily married life.
The couple has been the proud parents of three children. David was already the father of three when he was found guilty of his charges.
Darlene has been sharing a lot of her family moments with her fans on Instagram and Twitter. However, it is very noticeable that she has shared fewer moments with her husband than she has with her children and co-workers. This might be an indication that she is not very much inclined to show the public that she has been having a great time with an ex-sergeant charged guilty of official misconduct. Maybe she just doesn’t want a public uproar like that of 2008.
