Criminal sexual harassment charges against former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo are being dropped.
Albany County District Attorney David Soares said to the New York Post that the woman’s complaint was credible, but “we cannot meet our burden at trial.” Cuomo was accused of inappropriately touching a female aide at the Executive Mansion in Albany back in December 2020, a claim he has denied.
Cuomo was due to appear in court in the case later this week. This is the third legal break he’s gotten. Monday, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office had dropped its probe into Cuomo over allegations he mishandled nursing homes during the initial coronavirus outbreak. Also last week, the Westchester County district attorney dropped charges against him for inappropriately touching a female state trooper and kissing a random woman during separate incidents.
