Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was found to have sexually harassed multiple women, AG Letitia James announced in August after a 4-month investigation into the accusations.
According to NY AG Letitia James, Cuomo violated state and federal law.
James said Cuomo harassed current and former state employees and created a hostile work environment.
Cuomo resigned in disgrace on August 10 amid several criminal investigations into his sexual misconduct.
On Tuesday, Westchester County DA Mimi Rocah announced her office will not be filing charges against Cuomo.
The Westchester County DA’s office investigated two separate allegations against Cuomo and concluded they were credible.
“Our investigation found credible evidence to conclude that the alleged conduct in both instances described above did occur. However, in both instances, my Office has determined that, although the allegations and witnesses were credible, and the conduct concerning, we cannot pursue criminal charges due to the statutory requirements of the criminal laws of New York,” District Attorney Mimi Rocah said in a statement.
“This conclusion is unrelated to any possible civil liability which is beyond the scope of a District Attorney’s jurisdiction, which focuses solely on criminal laws,” she added.
