Weinstein: Three more cases sent to prosecutors

Weinstein: Three more cases sent to prosecutors

The Los Angeles Police Department has submitted at least three cases against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein to the District Attorney; signaling an arrest of the disgraced studio executive could happen at any moment.

No details of the allegations were released.

Share this article: Harvey Weinstein has allegedly sexually assaulted or engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior with dozens of women. She said the task force includes "specially trained" sex-crimes prosecutors who will review cases to determine if criminal charges are warranted.

A flood of sexual assault and rape allegations have been mounted against Weinstein since October, triggering police investigations in Los Angeles, New York and London.

Variety reported that the District Attorney's office is also looking into two other cases against Weinstein that were submitted by the Beverly Hills Police Department.




The veteran producer, who is reportedly in treatment for sexual addiction as he faces parallel investigations by the police in NY and London, has repeatedly denied having non-consensual sex.

The Weinstein scandal also unleashed a deluge of allegations against other powerful men in entertainment, politics and the media, forcing many industries to re-examine workplace policies.

Representatives for the Los Angeles Police Department declined immediate comment on the three cases cited by the District Attorney's Office.

While there is no longer a statute of limitations on sex crimes in the state of California, that only applies to acts committed after the beginning of 2017.
