The details: The prosecutor investigating Schneiderman said that while his accusers were credible, statutes of limitations and other legal barriers would make it difficult to bring charges. Schneiderman issued a statement Thursday saying that he accepts responsibility for his inappropriate conduct and that he is "committed to a lifelong path of recovery and making amends" to those who he harmed.
