Sandy Rubenstein was cleared of a rape accusation Monday, but not before one final, potentially humiliating revelation emerged about his ex-pal Al Sharpton.

A prescription for the sex pill Viagra was found in Rubenstein’s apartment — but it was issued in Sharpton’s name, a police source told the Daily News.

A shocked Sharpton initially said he was unaware of a doc’s note for the little blue pill that treats erectile dysfunction.

“I don’t know anything about that, no, I don’t know anything about that,” Sharpton said, after a speechless second.

“I look forward to many more years of practicing law and representing victims.”

But Rubenstein’s legal problems aren’t over: lawyers for his accuser immediately filed a civil suit against him in Brooklyn Supreme Court.

The suit says the woman was the subject of a “violent, perverted and cruel attack by Defendant Sanford Rubenstein” while she was “unconscious and thus unable to give consent.”

He “willfully and intentionally degraded, humiliated and violated her,” the lawsuit claims.

The long-awaited DA’s decision came three months after the headline-making allegations against Rubenstein were first alleged.

Rubenstein, 70, was accused of raping a top official in the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network following a 60th birthday party for the longtime activist.

The dapper, high-profile defense attorney and the woman returned to his posh E. 64 St. penthouse after the star-studded Oct. 1 celebration at the Four Seasons.

The NYPD investigated the case as a third-degree rape, meaning the victim was “incapable of consent.”

Sources said that indicated the 42-year-old woman who made the accusation was unconscious when the rape occurred — and the woman said she woke up after a boozy night to find Rubenstein having sex with her.

The accuser had bruises on both arms and vaginal bleeding after spending the night in Rubenstein’s $7 million apartment, said the woman’s lawyer, Kenneth Montgomery.

The attorney later said that Rubenstein might have fed his client marijuana-laced cookies that left her feeling “foggy,” a claim that was strongly denied by Rubenstein’s legal team.

The suit says the woman did not drink excessively, but passed out.

She “would wake up hours later to find herself next to almost 10 bloody condoms in bed,” the suit says.

But he roared back a moment later, accusing the source who leaked the detail of trying to embarrass him with a smear campaign and saying he would demand an investigation.

“I am not saying what I do or don’t do, I’m not going to invade my privacy for some cop,” said Sharpton. “I have no knowledge of what was in (Rubenstein’s) apartment. But it’s not uncommon for men of all ages to use certain things.

“If the motive of the cop was to embarrass me, at 60 years old, I am unembarrassable,” fumed Sharpton, whose longstanding animosity with the NYPD has reached a fever pitch because of his vocal opposition to stop-and-frisk and close relationship to Mayor de Blasio. The tensions got even worse recently with the execution of two cops who were shot while on duty.
