New York Gov. David Paterson should not face charges involving alleged attempts to cover up domestic violence claims against a former aide, a retired judge appointed to investigate Paterson's actions concluded in a report issued Wednesday.
The report said Paterson was guilty of "errors of judgment" but committed no crime.
Judge Judith Kaye, a former chief judge of the state appellate court, investigated whether Paterson interfered in the domestic violence case involving David Johnson, a former top aide.
In her report, Kaye said police officials and Paterson made some mistakes in handling the October 31 case involving Johnson and his girlfriend but broke no laws.
