Harvey Weinstein has been dusting off all his charges from multiple women for the past year, but today he was hit with even heavier legal weight from the Manhattan D.A.!
Harvey Weinstein is already facing rape and criminal sex act charges and a potential 25-years behind bars, but now it may be for life. Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com has this report via New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. who said today:
A Manhattan Grand Jury has now indicted Harvey Weinstein on some of the most serious sexual offenses that exist under New York’s Penal Law. This indictment is the result of the extraordinary courage exhibited by the survivors who have come forward. Our investigation continues. If you are a survivor of the predatory abuse with which Mr. Weinstein is charged, there is still time to pursue justice. Please call us at 212-335-9373.
It no longer looks like Harvey Weinstein is laughing!
Today’s announcement marks an additional count of Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree for a forcible sexual act against a third woman that allegedly occurred in 2006. Joining the two women identified in the previous indictment in late May, the new indictment also includes two counts of Predatory Sexual Assault.
The class A-11 felony predatory charge looms with a potential life or at least 10-25 years in prison for the disgraced producer.
The new criminal sex act charge could result in an additional decade in prison for the Oscar-winning Weinstein if found guilty. Weinstein pled not guilty to the previous grand jury indictment back on June 5 and is expected to do so in this latest move by the once strongly criticized Vance’s office.
Bottom line, things are NOT looking good for Weinstein. We have been reporting on Harvey since the news first broke online.
