Gov. Andrew Cuomo is expected to be interviewed by investigators with the state Attorney General's Office Saturday in connection to sexual harassment allegations.
Multiple women came forward earlier this year accusing Cuomo of sexual harassment.
Cuomo has denied any wrongdoing.
Prosecutors have already spoken to the women.
Law professor Richard Klein, of Touro Law School, says the governor will have his work cut out for him.
"He's gonna have trouble," predicts Klein. "He doesn't know in advance what it was they said. It's not like this was a trial and he's heard the testimony and then he's going to testify and respond and prepare to challenge the testimony that he heard."
As News 12 has reported, several women have accused Cuomo of unwanted kisses, touches and groping, as well as inappropriate sexual remarks.
According to reports, he will be questioned by two investigators from the Attorney General's Office.
Keith Scott, the education director at SAFE Center of Long Island, says it's been a long time coming.
"As we've seen over the past number of years, decades, many times when someone is in a high position of power these cases are brushed under the rug," says Scott. "We applaud the efforts of the attorney general."
Cuomo's interview may be an indication the probe is nearing its conclusion.
New York Attorney General Letitia James has said the investigation's findings would be released to the public in a report.
