Harvey Weinstein arrested after surrendering to police

Harvey Weinstein arrested after surrendering to police

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he was then arrested and charged with rape, a criminal sex act, sex abuse, and sexual misconduct - specifically for alleged incidents involving two women.

A woman who claims she was a victim of Harvey Weinstein in two incidents in the 1990s said alleged survivors she's in touch with feel "elated" at his surrender and arrest Friday, but predicted he'll now "play hard and dirty".

Weinstein faces rape and criminal sex act charges.

Weinstein has consistently denied any allegations of nonconsensual sex.

And in 2015, an Italian model went to New York City police and accused him of groping her during a meeting. She was among the first women to publicly accuse Weinstein of abuse. When another asked him, "What can you say?"

Deponent further states that he is informed by a second person known to the District Attorney's Office that on March 18, 2013, in the morning hours at 569 Lexington Avenue, in the County and State of NY, defendant kept informant physically against her will in a room and engaged in sexual intercourse with informant by forcible compulsion, to wit, defendant penetrated informant's vagina with his penis and, at the time of the incident informant had clearly expressed her lack of consent to the act.

Media surrounded the 66-year-old Weinstein outside the courthouse Friday.

After the hearing, Weinstein's attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said the disgraced mogul plans to plead not guilty.

She echoed numerous other women to explain why she did not press charges.

Evans told The New Yorker magazine in October that Weinstein forced her to perform a sexual act on him during a meeting at his office in New York City.

"At a certain point, you have to think about the greater good of humanity, of womankind", she told the magazine. They were not reported to the police at the time these events occurred and I anticipate that the women who have made these allegations, when subjected to cross-examination - in the event we even get that far - that the charges will not be believed by 12 people, assuming we get 12 fair people, who are not consumed by the movement that seems to have overtaken this case.

"I actually did not believe this day would come", she said on NBC's Megyn Kelly Today program. Some women's groups, including the Hollywood activist group Time's Up, accused the Democrat of being too deferential to Weinstein and too dismissive of his accusers.

He has until May 30 to decide whether to speak before a grand jury.

"Today Harvey Weinstein will take his first step on his inevitable descent to hell". That investigation is in its preliminary stages.

He's accused of confining a woman in a Manhattan hotel room and raping her in 2013, according to a court complaint. Film actress Rose McGowan said Weinstein raped her in 1997 in Utah, "Sopranos" actress Annabella Sciorra said he raped her in her NY apartment in 1992 and Norwegian actress Natassia Malthe said he attacked her in a London hotel room in 2008.

"The justice system has been something very elusive", McGowan said. Because it's all true. Lucia, at the time an up-and-coming actress, said the producer forced her to perform oral sex on him.

The statute of limitations for rape and certain other sex crimes in NY was eliminated in 2006, but not for attacks that happened prior to 2001. Considered to have lead one of the most progressive campaigns ever, Clinton said in a statement that she was "shocked and appalled by the revelations" about the Hollywood producer.

Police in California and London are also investigating Weinstein for possible wrongdoing. Britain has no statute of limits on rape cases; some of the allegations under investigation there date to the 1980s.
