Breaking: Albany DA Drops Forcible Touching Charges against Andrew Cuomo

The Albany County District Attorney's office said Tuesday it was dropping criminal charges of forcible touching against former New York governor Andrew Cuomo just days before he was set to be arraigned.

District Attorney David Soares announced the dismissal of the misdemeanor criminal charges related to accusations that Cuomo forcibly touched a female aide in the governor’s mansion in December 2020, but added that the woman’s complaint was credible.

"After review of all the available evidence we have concluded that we cannot meet our burden at trial," he said in a statement

"As such we have notified the Court that we are declining to prosecute this matter and requesting the charges filed by the Albany County Sheriff be dismissed," Soares added.
