Report: Weinstein Will Turn Himself in on Sex-Crime Charges
Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood mogul and former film producer, is set to turn himself in on Friday to face charges stemming from “alleged sexual misconduct,” according to the New York Daily News. Weinstein currently faces charges related to at least one accuser, Lucia Evans, who claims Weinstein “forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004.” The Daily News reports that the “statute of limitations does not apply” in his case due to the “nature of the allegations” against him. A grand jury reviewed evidence in the Weinstein probe weeks ago, the newspaper reported. Weinstein has maintained that he did not participate in non-consensual sexual relations with any of the women who have come forward against him. His attorney, Benjamin Brafman, declined to comment.
