    The announcement of the charge was chaotic on Thursday; the criminal summons was filed hastily, before sheriff’s deputies had received the permission of Commisso. It was then leaked to a local reporter in Albany, who tweeted about it and published a brief report on New York Focus.

    Spokespeople for the Albany County Sheriff’s Department then refused to confirm or deny whether or not their office had filed charges.

    Eventually Lucien Chalfen, a spokesman for the court system, confirmed it to 워싱턴 포스트.
