Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s alleged sexual harassment of a member of his security detail at a Long Island race track, part of a damning report that led to his resignation in August, was “deeply troubling” but not criminal, the local district attorney concluded.

The finding was announced Thursday by Acting Nassau County District Attorney Joyce Smith, whose office probed one of 11 alleged incidents of abuse by Cuomo outlined in the report by New York Attorney General Letitia James.
