NEW YORK – The former New York State Attorney General who stepped down after allegations of assault will not face criminal charges, according to the prosecutor overseeing the case.

Eric Schneiderman resigned six months ago after two women spoke to the New Yorker Magazine.

They claimed Schneiderman hit and choked them and they later sought medical attention because of what happened.



Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas was appointed special prosecutor in Schneiderman’s investigation.

She said her team interviewed members of Schneiderman’s security detail, employees who worked with him at the New York Attorney General’s Office, and witnesses.

Singas said she believes the women’s accounts of abuse, but Schneiderman can’t be charged due to legal issues, like the statute of limitations.
