Disgraced former NY governor Andrew Cuomo has been charged with a sex crime, two months after being forced out of office.

An arrest warrant was issued by the New York Attorney General’s office charging Cuomo with forcibly touching related to an incident with a former aide.

Cuomo was hit with a “misdemeanor complaint” accusing him of touching the breast of a former aide at the governor’s Executive mansion last year.

The charges were filed at the Albany City Court on Thursday, Oct. 28, by AG Letitia James, who is now campaigning for his former job.

The AG’s office determined Cuomo had committed criminal sexual assault, a Class A misdemeanor, according to a clerk at the Albany City Court.

Cuomo is expected to turn himself in next week in New York, according to the NY Post.

The former governor was ousted in August after an investigation by the attorney general’s office found that he sexually harassed female staffers and a female state trooper who was assigned to guard him.

In July, Cuomo lashed out at the attorney’s office, and accused the Democrats of a “political Witch Hunt.”

Cuomo, a Democrat, previously accused former President Donald Trump of being inappropriate with women.
