Harvey Weinstein To Surrender Following Sexual Assault Charges

Harvey Weinstein To Surrender Following Sexual Assault Charges

The scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein erupted on October 5 previous year, with the publication in The New York Times of a first series of accusations from women who claimed to have been harassed or assaulted by the movie mogul.

Weinstein has been charged with raping one woman and forcing another to perform oral sex on him, the New York Times reported, citing unidentified law enforcement officials. Evans has not responded to any of CNN's requests for comment since first speaking out about Weinstein in the New Yorker last fall.

Weinstein was arraigned at a New York City courthouse around 9:30am ET.

Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has been charged in the U.S. with rape, sex abuse and other crimes against two women.

Vance says in statement additional survivors are urged to call D.A.'s Sex Crimes Hotline Criminal Court complaint follows a months long investigation and the D.A.'s office is continuing to investigate allegations involving additional victims and other crimes.

The New York Police Department and the Manhattan district attorney's office declined to confirm the news reports. His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, didn't elaborate further on the denials Friday, saying he wasn't there "to try the case" at this point.

"Mr. Weinstein will enter a plea of not guilty".

As part of a bail package negotiated in advance, Weinstein will put up Dollars one million in cash and agree to wearing a monitoring device.

Jason Piening, also of West Toledo, said the price of gas affects his driving habits - but not much. This story comes to us through a partnership between WITF and The York Daily Record .

Under a previously agreed bail package, Weinstein's travel will be restricted to NY and the neighbouring state of CT, and he agreed to surrender his passport. The rape charge stems from an allegation by a woman who has not been publicly identified. 'I said, over and over, 'I don't want to do this, stop, don't, " she added.

The district attorney and police have been investigating Weinstein for months, under growing pressure from the Time's Up movement and Hollywood actresses to bring the disgraced producer to justice. "I tried to get away, but maybe I didn't try hard enough".

Evans, now a marketing consultant, told The New Yorker that Weinstein approached her in a club in 2004 and assaulted her in a Tribeca office. She is not one of the victims in the case on Friday; hers was still pending, officials said. "I have a visceral need for him to have handcuffs on". "None of this was consensual", she said. A few, including Asia Argento and Rose McGowan, said they were raped.

His wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, is now divorcing him with police investigations also ongoing in London and Los Angeles.

But, unlike those with tales of sexual harassment and misconduct, McGowan was among the few who accused him of assault.

He co-founded Miramax, which has produced such Academy Award-winning films as Pulp Fiction, Chicago, The English Patient and Shakespeare in Love.

"Not in a million years, and one of the hardest conversations I had over and over again with these courageous women was that in addition to the sacrifice they were making in telling this story, they didn't think they would ever be heard if they did take that leap, let alone to see actual accountability", Farrow told CNN.
