Nassau County Declines to Charge Cuomo For Allegations

December 24, 2021

Nassau County prosecutors have declined to bring charges against former Gov. Andrew Cuomo over sexual misconduct allegations stemming from New York Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation.

“Our exhaustive investigation found the allegations credible, deeply troubling, but not criminal under New York law,” Acting Nassau County District Attorney Joyce Smith said.

Nassau County investigated allegations that Cuomo inappropriately touched a state trooper at Belmont Racetrack in September 2019 in Long Island, New York. The unidentified state trooper is one of eleven women whose allegations were vetted during James’ investigation of Cuomo.

“It is important to note that our investigation was limited to alleged conduct at Belmont Racetrack, and prosecutors in other jurisdictions continue to review other allegations of misconduct by Mr. Cuomo,” Smith said.“We thank the brave individuals who came forward and cooperated with our office during this investigation, and gratefully acknowledge our colleagues, Attorney General James and the New York State Assembly, for their diligence and collaboration.”Cuomo, already disgraced thanks to his lethal mismanagement of the COVID pandemic in his state, naturally has denied the allegations of sexual misconduct that continue to pile up.
