Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Charged with Forcible Touching

The Albany County Sheriff’s Office on Oct. 28 charged former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo with forcible touching, a misdemeanor sex crime.

In the complaint filed in a criminal court, Investigator Amy Kowalski accused Cuomo of “knowingly and intentionally” placing his hand “under the blouse” of the victim and “onto her intimate body part.”

“Specifically, the victim’s left breast for the purposes of degrading and gratifying his sexual desires,” the complaint alleged.

The incident allegedly occurred on Dec. 7, 2020 at the Governor’s Executive Mansion, according to the complaint.

Cuomo resigned in August, three weeks after the office of State Attorney General Letitia James issued a report that found he sexually harassed 11 women, including state employees, following a months-long investigation.

Cuomo has repeatedly denied the allegations of sexual misconduct.
