Disgraced Hollywood Mogul Harvey Weinstein Hit With Multiple Sex Crime Charges

Harvey Weinstein, who faced allegations from numerous women concerning grotesque sexual acts against them, was just charged in Los Angeles on the same day that separate case was to begin in New York City.

Weinstein, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey, was charged with raping one of the women and sexually assaulting another, which were two separate incidents that took place in 2013, according to ABC News.

Specifics of the charges are extremely serious and disturbing. “Defendant Weinstein was charged with one felony count each of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by use of force and sexual battery by restraint,” the report said.

“We believe the evidence will show that the defendant used his power and influence to gain access to his victims and then commit violent crimes against them,” District Attorney Lacey said. “I want to commend the victims who have come forward and bravely recounted what happened to them. It is my hope that all victims of sexual violence find strength and healing as they move forward.”

Weinstein has repeatedly denied that any of the allegations are true, claiming that the sexual encounters were consensual in nature.

Prosecutors in charge of the case recommended a $5 million bail for the judge. If Weinstein is found guilty of the charges, he could face up to 28 years in prison for the sexual assault charges.

Weinstein’s arraignment has been set for a future date.

According to breaking news from TMZ, Weinstein will reportedly make the $5 million bail with the help of celebrity bail bondsman Ira Judelson.
