Complaint alleging a sex crime has been filed against former NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo, court spokesman says


(CNN)A misdemeanor complaint alleging a sex crime has been filed against former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who resigned from his post after multiple women came forward alleging inappropriate touching.

Lucian Chalfen, a spokesman for New York state courts, confirmed to CNN that a misdemeanor complaint against the former Democratic governor has been filed in Albany City Court.

“As this is a sex crime, a redacted complaint will be available shortly,” Chalfen said in a statement to CNN.

    Cuomo has repeatedly denied the allegations of sexual misconduct against him, allowing that he made mistakes, but always insisting that the more serious accusations were untrue.

      CNN has reached out to Cuomo’s attorneys and spokesperson, the Albany district attorney and Albany Sheriff’s Department.
