Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will not face charges of sexual assault against two women in Westchester County. The prosecutor says he has “convincing evidence” that Cuomo touched the two women inappropriately. But that was not a crime.
Cuomo is another stroke of luck that is not yet over his legal problems. The Nassau County Prosecutor’s Office recently ruled that the former governor had not committed a criminal offence. He would also have sexually harassed one of the two women there.
Several cases are pending against Cuomo. They started after New York Attorney General Letitia James released a report in August that concluded he had sexually harassed 11 women, including former staffers.
According to the report, two cases of inappropriate behaviour occurred in Westchester County. He is said to have forced an officer there to let him kiss her, and he would have grabbed another woman at a school without her permission and kissed her on the cheek.
The report cost Cuomo his job. He has consistently denied the charges and claims that he was the victim of a political vendetta.
