After looking at the pieces of evidence lodge against former New York governor Andrew Cuomo, the Albany country district attorney has decided to drop on Tuesday the criminal sexual assault charges against the former chief executive of the state of NY.
In a one-page statement, Albany County District Attorney David Soares said while they found the complainant cooperative and credible the pieces of evidence filed against Cuomo has no leg to stand in a court trial.
“Albany County District Attorney David Soares announced today that a thorough and independent review of the investigation into the allegations against former Governor Andrew Cuomo has concluded,” the DA’s office said in a statement.
The complaint was earlier filed by Brittany Commisso — the former Cuomo staffer and current state worker.
With the dismissal of the case, the supposed arraignment of Cuomo this coming Friday, Jan. 7 at 1:30 P.M. will not proceed anymore.
Cuomo or any of his representatives has yet to issue an official statement on the dismissal of his criminal case.
