CINCINNATI — Tamaya Dennard announced her resignation from Cincinnati City Council Monday, bowing to an ultimatum and the threat of more criminal charges from Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters.

“The last thing I want is to be a distraction from the work that needs to be done for this city,” she wrote in a statement. “My main focus has been the people I serve. I need all of my time and energy to address these charges against me. It is for this reason I have decided to step aside.”
