The Latest: Schneiderman accuser wants donation, apology

NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on a prosecutor’s decision not to charge former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman with abusing women (all times local):

11:30 a.m.

One of the women who accused former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s of physical abuse is demanding that he donate millions of dollars left in his campaign coffers to women’s shelters and domestic abuse programs.

Michelle Manning Barish tweeted that Thursday in reaction to a special prosecutor’s decision not to charge Schneiderman over allegations he abused several women.

Manning Barish wrote that she needs an admission of wrongdoing and an apology “or I will fight.”

Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas said Thursday she had concluded that statutes of limitations and other legal impediments made it impossible to charge Schneiderman.

Schneiderman said through a publicist that he didn’t consider the decision an exoneration. The Democrat apologized for any pain he’d caused.

The prosecutor appointed to investigate allegations that former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman physically abused women says she has closed the case without bringing criminal charges.

Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas announced her decision Thursday.

She said in a brief statement that investigators did an “exhaustive review” and she personally interviewed each woman who had accused Schneiderman of assault.

Singas says investigators also spoke with members of Schneiderman’s security detail.

But she said she concluded that “legal impediments, including statutes of limitations, preclude criminal prosecution.”

Singas added that the probe found no misconduct by Schneiderman’s staff in the attorney general’s office.

Schneiderman said in a statement he didn’t consider the decision an exoneration. He also apologized “for any and all pain that I have caused.”
