A state grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo. Rather, she said, Pantaleo "knew of the grave risks associated with prohibited chokeholds, and that by using one under these circumstances, he engaged in a gross deviation from the standard of conduct established for a New York City police officer".
"If I was still a police officer I would probably not be happy", he said.
The New York City police officer involved in the 2014 death of Eric Garner has been fired.
Maldonado ultimately recommended that Pantaleo be fired.
Police Commissioner James O'Neill is expected to reveal the fate of Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo on Monday, according to law enforcement sources.
'Specifically, [Pantaleo's] self-serving version of events failed to satisfactorily account for the uncontroverted medical evidence of hemorrhaging in Mr. Garner's anterior neck muscles and thus tribunal's own assessment of the video evidence capturing [Pantaleo] clasping his hands and pressing his forearm against Mr. Garner's neck.
Garner's death came at a time of a growing public outcry over police killings of unarmed black men that sparked the national Black Lives Mattermovement.
Earlier this summer, Attorney General William Barr declined to bring federal charges against the embattled officer.

Britain strips 'Jihadi Jack' of citizenship
Bangladesh's foreign minister has said that Begum could be hanged for terrorism charges if she lands in Bangladesh. I thought we had the right to innocent until proven guilty, the right of a trial, the right of free speech.
Pantaleo is the officer who was recorded on video wrestling Eric Garner to the ground in 2014, with his arm wrapped tightly around Garner's neck. As Pantaleo forces Garner's head into the sidewalk, Garner can be heard saying, "I can't breathe". Pantaleo's lawyer has said the officer used a reasonable amount of force.
The conversation surrounding Garner's death entered the national spotlight, with "I can't breathe" becoming a rallying cry for activists and protesters fighting against police brutality.
His death, and the slow-moving investigations that followed, have generated some of the harshest criticisms of Mayor Bill de Blasio during his tenure and have spilled over into his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The department underwent an additional review, which culminated in Monday's decision.
"After five long years, Eric Garner's family, the City of NY, and a nation that long has had watchful eyes upon this case finally have closure".
"I stand before you today confident that I have reached the correct decision", O'Neill said.
Last month the Justice Department ruled against the Civil Rights Division's recommendation that charges be brought against Pantaleo, siding with officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of NY, and arguing the government's burden of proof could not be met.
When Pantaleo told investigators he did not use a chokehold, Maldonado called those statements "untruthful" and "disingenuous".
