“A Misdemeanor Complaint against former Governor Andrew Cuomo has been filed in Albany City Court” the spokesperson stated in a press release. “As this is a sex crime, a redacted complaint will be available shortly.”
Mariann Wang, the legal professional for Cuomo accusers Alyssa McGrath and Virginia Limmiatis, launched the follow-up assertion on Thursday:
“My clients are enormously grateful for the courage of the women who have come forward to speak the truth about Cuomo’s misconduct,” Wang stated. “Cuomo is being held to account as he should be, including by being forced to answer a criminal charge. We hope that all men who abuse their power by abusing women will see this and understand that there will be real consequences to their profoundly damaging behavior.”
Forcible touching is a misdemeanor with a most sentence of 1 yr in jail.
If the state convicts Cuomo of forcible touching, he must register as a intercourse offender, says the New York Post. A decide would then resolve on his probably danger of committing one other intercourse crime.
