ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The woman who accused former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of fondling her in the executive mansion said a prosecutor’s decision to drop the case shows why victims fear coming forward against powerful people.

Brittany Commisso was one of Cuomo’s executive assistants before he resigned.

She released a statement Tuesday, hours after the district attorney in Albany announced the former governor would not face criminal prosecution over the allegation.

Commisso said the criminal justice system needs to do better.

Cuomo has denied the allegation, and has had no comment on the latest development.

He resigned in August.
