Aide to NY state senator faces domestic violence charges

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - An aide to a New York state senator faces felony assault charges after a grand jury indicted him for allegedly hitting a woman with a television cord.

The Times Union of Albany reports that Robert Nickol is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in connection with the September domestic violence incident.

Nickol is an aide to Sen. William Larkin, a Republican.

An Albany County grand jury indicted Nickol on Tuesday on charges of assault and strangulation.

Neither Larkin's office not Nickol's attorney, James Knox, immediately returned calls seeking comment.
