Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for people convicted of two sexual offenses in the subway to be banned from the system.
“Two convictions for sexual assault on a subway, you should be banned,” Cuomo said.
He said people are vulnerable on the trains because they’re often so crowded.
“You have people who target victims in the subways,” Cuomo said.
The governor defended the MTA against criticism that the agency hasn’t done more to prevent perverts from using the subway system.He said that requires legislative action by the state.
“I believe you need a legal change to do that,” Cuomo said.
