Eric Schneiderman, former New York A.G., won’t face charges: Report

November 8, 2018

Former New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman won’t face any criminal charges after being accused of physically abusing women.

Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas declined to charge the former attorney general on Thursday.

According to news reports, Ms. Singas said she believed the women but ran into “legal impediments” like the statute of imitations that prevented any charges.

Mr. Schneiderman, a Democrat, issued a statement about his misconduct Thursday, according to WGRZ, which reports he recently spent time in rehab.

“I recognize that District Attorney Singas’ decision not to prosecute does not mean I have done nothing wrong,” Mr. Schneiderman said. “I accept full responsibility for my conduct in my relationships with my accusers, and for the impact it had on them.”

Mr. Schneiderman resigned as the state attorney general in May after The New Yorker published an article with several women accusing him of physically abusing them during their romantic relationships.
