- A New York sheriff said Friday that “we have an overwhelming amount of evidence” against former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a day after a criminal complaint accused him of a sex crime against an aide.
- Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple also revealed that he was caught by surprise by the abrupt docketing of the complaint shortly after his office filed it in Albany City Court on Thursday.
- “We kind of got sandbagged ourselves,” Apple told reporters, saying he planned for the complaint to be publicly filed much later than Thursday.
Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo will get his mug shot taken and be fingerprinted next month — to face “an overwhelming amount of evidence against him,” authorities said Friday
“He will be arraigned, he will be fingerprinted,” Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple told The Post of Cuomo’s Nov. 17 court date involving the misdemeanor criminal forcible-touching charge against him for allegedly grabbing a female ex-aide’s breast.
“He will be photographed and … [presumably] he will be released on his own recognizance,” Apple said of the disgraced ex-governor.
The sheriff insisted at a press conference later Friday that the case against Cuomo is “solid.”
“I think we have an overwhelming amount of evidence,” Apple told reporters, calling his office’s probe “a very comprehensive and methodical investigation.”
