According to the Daily News, Chrimy Sagaille, who is currently suspended from the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office, was arrested on Saturday, August 6, 2016 after he ran a red light at East 85th Street and Flatlands Avenue. He had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol, according to the officers, but refused a Breathalyzer test.

The NY Post reported Sagaille then allegedly forced himself onto a woman who had driven him home from a party on April 30th. The woman claimed he “grabbed her face and stuck his tongue down her throat. She pulled away and screamed at him, so Sagaille allegedly lunged at her again, this time forcibly grabbing her breast. She pulled over and demanded he get out of her car, but he allegedly told her he wasn’t going anywhere until she gave him a kiss.”

He later surrendered himself to police at Manhattan’s NYPD Special Victims Unit.

On Monday, May 8th, New York City Criminal Court Judge Elizabeth Warin determined it is possible to hear both the driving while intoxicated and sexual abuse cases starting with Sagaille’s next court date of July 19th.

It is unknown how much time Sagaille faces in prison if convicted on one or both of the charges.
