Former NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will not face charges

WTEN - The Nassau County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday that the former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will not face any charges.

According to DA Madeline Singas, the investigation found no misconduct by Schneiderman's staff in the Office of the Attorney General.

"I believe the women who shared their experiences with our investigation team, however legal impediments, including statutes of limitations, preclude criminal prosecution. Our investigation also highlighted deficiencies in New York law for which I have drafted remedial legislation," Singas said.

Schneiderman, who was a prominent voice in the #MeToo movement, taking legal action against Harvey Weinstein, was accused of committing abuses of his own.

Four women with whom Schneiderman has had a romantic relationship with claim he physically abused them, according to The New Yorker. 

Two of the four women, who spoke on the record with The New Yorker, say Schneiderman would repeatedly hit them, often times after drinking.
