A woman who had accused Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment now criminally denounced him

A woman who had accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of groping her at the governor’s state residence filed a criminal complaint against himthe Albany County Sheriff’s Office said Friday.

The complaint, filed Thursday with the sheriff’s office, is the first known case in which a woman has made an official complaint to a law enforcement agency for alleged misconduct by Cuomo.

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple told The New York Post that the Democratic governor may be arrested if investigators or the county district attorney determine that you have committed a crime.

“The end result could be that it sounds like something grounded and stop it, and it would be up to the district attorney to process the arrest, “he told the newspaper, which was the first to report the complaint.” Just because of who it is we’re not going to rush or delay it, “Apple said.

Apple did not immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press. His office confirmed to The AP that the complaint had been filed.

Cuomo’s assistant who filed the complaint he had accused of putting his hand under his shirt and fondling her when they were alone at the executive mansion last year.

An independent investigation overseen by the state attorney general’s office this week found that Cuomo had sexually harassed 11 women and worked to retaliate against one of his accusers.

Prosecutors in several New York counties have said they are interested in investigating allegations of inappropriate touching by Cuomo, but all had said they needed the women implicated in the allegations make a formal complaint.

The sheriff’s office did not immediately provide a copy of the complaint. A request for comment was sent to Cuomo’s attorney, Rita Glavin.

Cuomo has denied touching anyone inappropriately and has said the alleged groping did not occur.

The woman also told investigators at the attorney general’s office that Cuomo once rubbed her butt while they posed together for a photo.
