Weinstein arraigned on rape, other sex charges

Weinstein arraigned on rape, other sex charges

In a declaration filed on May 3 in the Weinstein Co's bankruptcy proceedings, lawyer Benjamin Brafman said Mr Weinstein was a "principal target" of an investigation being carried out by the USA attorney's office in Manhattan.

Louise Godbold, a British woman living in Los Angeles, said the phenomenon of global support that has sprung up with allegations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein and others "was the honeymoon".

Harvey Weinstein will be charged with a sex crime - the first criminal charge since his sexual-harassment scandal broke in October 2017.

"We heard these stories (about Weinstein) after a man accused of sexual assault and harassment from multiple women ascended to the highest office in the country", she said.

She was one of the earliest Harvey Weinstein accusers, and she thought the mogul might never face justice in a court of law. The movie producer was charged with both rape and another sex felony.

The NY police said shortly after that he was charged for a rape and a sexual assault on two women separate, without giving other details.

There was concern the lava would release hydrogen sulfide or other toxic gases. Lava had also covered two wells at a geothermal plant as of Sunday.

Clad in a blue sweater and black suit jacket, Weinstein was shuffled past the hordes of paparazzi-a memorable scene in its parallels to the all too familiar scrutiny women have faced while walking past men on sidewalks around the world.

The exact charges against Weinstein still had not been made public early Friday. Another aspiring actress, Mimi Haleyi, said Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in his NY apartment in 2006. His travel will be restricted and he will surrender his passport, The New York Times reported. However, Wallace said she pumped him for information about the investigation and insisted on sitting close to him, leading him to believe she was recording him.

"I said, over and over, 'I don't want to do this, stop, don't, ' " she told the magazine.

Asia Argento, who like McGowan was among the first to share her story with journalists last fall said in a statement to CNN: "After decades of abusing women with impunity, finally, the beginning of the end of Harvey Weinstein's reign of terror. Because one win is a win for all of us", McGowan said Thursday night.

Over the revelations of the New York Times and the New Yorker, winning the Pulitzer prize for their investigations, it appeared that Weinstein -long revered for having promoted a original cinema embodied by directors such as Quentin Tarantino- had used his power, for almost 40 years, to get young actresses or aspiring actresses to give in to his sexual fantasies, sometimes assisted by its employees and buying the silence of victims through confidentiality agreements. She says they're "all elated".

In his NY offices, Weinstein "put my hand on his crotch", then chased her to the elevator and kissed her in front of his staff, she claimed. Britain has no statute of limits on rape cases; some of the allegations under investigation there go back to the 1980s. The films he steered to Academy Awards glory include "The Artist", "The King's Speech" and "The Iron Lady" - which won best actress for Streep as former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher. Al Franken, chef Mario Batali, casino magnate Steve Wynn and, most recently, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
