Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been charged with a misdemeanor complaint in Albany City Court for a sex-crime related charge, a spokesperson for New York State courts has confirmed to multiple media outlets. 

Lucian Chalfen, a spokesman for New York State courts said: “A Misdemeanor Complaint against former Governor Andrew Cuomo has been filed in Albany City Court. As this is a sex crime, a redacted complaint will be available shortly.”

Cuomo was charged with forcible touching, a class A misdemeanor, according to media reports. He resigned in disgrace earlier this year.

From The Daily Mail:

Ousted New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been charged with forcible touching, two months after being pushed out of office by New York AG Attorney General Letitia James, the woman now campaigning for his job. 

The charges were filed on Thursday in Albany City Court, before sheriffs had received the permission of the victim – Brittany Commisso – to do so. 

The first hint of them came from an Albany reporter for New York Focus who cited unnamed sources in the court, saying charges had been filed.

From Nysfocus:

The Albany County Criminal Court issued a criminal summons for former governor Andrew Cuomo in connection with charges of “forcible touching,” a Class A misdemeanor, a court clerk told New York Focus. The clerk said that the local sheriff’s department has filed charges against Cuomo for forcible touching, a Class A misdemeanor.

“A Misdemeanor Complaint against former Governor Andrew Cuomo has been filed in Albany City Court” a court spokesperson said in a statement to the Washington Post. “As this is a sex crime, a redacted complaint will be available shortly.”
