A New York sheriff claims Putnam County District Attorney Adam Levy was trying to influence – and possibly undermine – the investigation surrounding the rape of a 12-year-old girl.
Officials say the victim just recently came forward after confiding in a school counselor.
Hossu, a Romanian immigrant who has known Levy and his family for “years” — is said to have worked for the District Attorney as a live-in personal trainer.
Despite the accusations, Levy says he promptly recused himself from the case upon learning Hossu was being investigated.
Levy’s mother, Judy Sheindlin, is widely known as the no-nonsense, wise cracking TV judge, Judge Judy.
