ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A prosecutor investigating accusations that former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was accused of having sex with a woman and has asked for more time.
Albany County District Attorney David Soares said in a letter Friday that the criminal complaint filed last week by the local sheriff was “potentially defective.”
This request is a major blow to the high-profile case, which comes just a week following Cuomo’s arrest in a sheriff’s complaint for committing a misdemeanor of sex criminal.
In a letter to Judge Holly Trexler, Soares stated that although his office has been looking into the matter for several month but still has large volumes of material to review.
A spokesperson for Soares claimed that the court granted a delay of January 7, 2022.
Cuomo, who was facing numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, resigned from his position as New York Governor. He denied any wrongdoing.
