Harvey Weinstein indicted on rape and sex offence charges

Harvey Weinstein indicted on rape and sex offence charges

A new rape allegation has been made against accused rapist Harvey Weinstein as part of a civil lawsuit alleging that he had help covering up his alleged sexual misconduct with women.

Just last Friday, Weinstein was arrested and surrendered himself to authorities in New York City following multiple investigations into claims of sexual misconduct carried out by the Manhattan District Attorney's office and the NYPD.

"A Grand Jury has voted to indict Harvey Weinstein on charges of Rape in the First and Third Degrees, and Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree".

A second woman in the suit, actress Caitlin Dulany, alleged that she was assaulted by the producer in 1996 at Cannes Film Festival, whilst actress Larissa Gomes claims she was cornered in a hotel room in Toronto in 2000.

The lawsuit accuses Weinstein of running offices at the movie companies he controlled - Miramax and then the Weinstein Company - and hotel rooms like a "casting couch", and says this was "a choice facilitated and condoned by Miramax, the Weinstein Company and its board of directors".

He could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted of either offence. While she's describing Intercast Networks' business model, Weinstein allegedly touches her legs. She accepted it and was taken to a hotel where Weinstein was staying.

The Friday filing alleges Weinstein's former employers are responsible for sexual offenses that happened during his employment and that some employers may have concealed Weinstein's conduct or participated in the "decadeslong campaign to squelch complaints or illegally procure the silence of victims, witnesses and others", according to the complaint.
