LAPD Submits 3 More Cases of Alleged Sexual Assault by Harvey Weinstein

10 February 2018

Three sexual assault cases against film producer Harvey Weinstein have been presented to prosecutors in LA, the District Attorney's Office said on Thursday.

Harvey Weinstein could soon be facing criminal charges for alleged sexual abuse.

No details of the allegations were released.

According to Variety, the cases likely center around accusations the Democratic super-donor raped an Italian model inside a Los Angeles hotel in 2013.

The LAPD reportedly submitted the cases on February 1.

Shevach's suspected killer, 22-year-old Ahmad Jarrar, was killed in the village of Yamoun near Jenin after a weeks-long manhunt. Shortly after the missile was sacked , forces then began demolishing the building with a bulldozer, reported Palestinian media.

That brings to five the number of cases the Los Angeles County district attorney's office is looking into involving Weinstein.

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. Beverly Hills police separately presented two cases to prosecutors in December.

Los Angeles is one of three cities, along with NY and London, where police are investigating claims against the co-founder of the studio Miramax, who was one of the most influential men in Hollywood before more than 70 women accused him of sexual misconduct, including rape.

Weinstein has not commented on the latest development but has in the past denied any "non-consensual sex" took place over the years.

Accusations of sexual assault have continued to pour in since an expose in The New Yorker Magazine a year ago brought to light decades of an abuse culture in the entertainment industry and has paved way for a wider look into more sectors where it is present and persists.
