An attorney for former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says she's confident the district attorney who has been charged with investigating sexual misconduct allegations against her client "will conduct a fair, thorough and unbiased investigation."

Isabelle Kirshner says that while she's confident the investigation into the allegations of abuse by four women won't result in any criminal charges, she will defend him "vigorously" if any are brought.

Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo has picked Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas to serve as special prosecutor on the case. She replaces Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance.

Cuomo says he picked a replacement to avoid a possible perception of conflict. Vance objected, but says he understands.
