An aide to state Sen. Bill Larkin, R-C-Cornwall-on Hudson, resigned Tuesday from his job in the wake of a felony domestic violence indictment.

“Today Senator Larkin accepted Robert Nickol's resignation effective immediately,” Larkin’s spokesman, Brian Maher, said on Tuesday.

Nickol, 32, of Albany, was indicted last week on felony counts of second-degree strangulation, second-degree assault and a misdemeanor assault count. He was released without bail after arraignment on Friday, with the condition that he report regularly to a pretrial release program through probation.

The indictment charges Nickol with choking a woman into unconsciousness in June 2015, with striking her in the face in March 2017, and with striking her on the thigh with a television cord in September 2017. He was arrested in September.

Nickol was initially placed on paid administrative leave on Friday, after his arraignment, from his $92,100-per-year job.
