The Manhattan district attorney's office and NY police have investigated Weinstein for months, coming under growing pressure from the Time's Up movement to bring the disgraced producer to justice.

Seven months after the allegations destroyed his career and catalyzed the (hash) MeToo movement, the once-powerhouse movie producer turned himself in to face the charges, which stem from encounters with two of the dozens who have accused him of sexual misdeeds ranging from harassment to assault.

Law enforcement officials did not immediately identify the two women who Weinstein is charged with attacking.

"Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein". The Times' Mueller noted a 2015 undercover sting operation launched by New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. and New York police, in which the producer was recorded admitting to groping an Italian actress. He appeared pale, standing next to his lawyer Ben Brafman, while prosecutors described a bail arrangement.

A grand jury has been hearing evidence against the former Hollywood kingmaker for several weeks, but charges have not yet been filed.

NY police have also confirmed a credible rape allegation against Weinstein after "Boardwalk Empire" actress Paz de la Huerta accused him of raping her twice at her NY apartment in late 2010.

The New York Post said he would surrender to police, where he would likely have his mugshot and fingerprints taken, before being taken to a Manhattan court, where experts predicted he would plead not guilty. The detective also said that in 2013, Weinstein kept a woman in a room against her will "and engaged in sexual intercourse with informant by forcible compulsion", even though she had "clearly expressed her lack of consent to the act".

According to ambulance officials, a total of 18 people were injured following the impact, majority not critically. AGI said one female passenger was in a serious condition after sustaining a head injury but she remains conscious.


It's not clear whether Weinstein will face additional charges involving other women.

The two spoke for a bit and then, according to Evans, Weinstein pulled out his penis and forced her to perform oral sex on him inside the office. Rape in the first degree is a Class B felony, carrying a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison. She called Weinstein "the cult leader of Hollywood" and "their king" and said he was a "constant shadow" who followed her around because he was so present on TV and in other media.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Rosanna Arquette join the list of women accusing Weinstein of harassment. Authorities in California and London also are investigating assault allegations. Britain has no statute of limits on rape cases; some of the allegations under investigation there date to the 1980s.

Evans tells The New Yorker that she's pressing charges. About an hour later, he left the police station in handcuffs, to be driven to court. A formal presentation will be made on Mr. Weinstein's behalf in the appropriate course of the investigation, and we strongly believe we will demonstrate that no criminal charges are warranted, ' said his spokesperson at the time. The Weinstein Co. found success with Oscar winners "The Artist" and "The King's Speech". They include TV hosts Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose, comedian Louis C.K, Democratic U.S. Sen.
