One of the women accusing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment has officially filed a criminal complaint with the Albany County Sheriff’s office.

Fox News reports:
The end result could either be it sounds substantiated and an arrest is made and it would be up to the DA to prosecute the arrest,” he said.
The sheriff noted that because the allegations involved the governor the woman’s allegation will not be “rushed or delayed.”
The woman claimed Cuomo groped her at the Executive Mansion in Albany on Nov. 16.
“I mean it was—he was like cupping my breast. He cupped my breast,” the woman told investigators on AG James’ team.
“I have to tell you it was—at the moment I was in such shock that I could just tell you that I just remember looking down seeing his hand, seeing the top of my bra and I remember it was like a little even the cup—the kind of bra that I had to the point I could tell you doesn’t really fit me properly, it was a little loose, I just remember seeing exactly that,” she added, according to the report.
The woman said that was not the only time Cuomo groped her, in Letitia James’ report she also alleged he had grabbed her while posing for a picture.
