Weinstein's day of reckoning

“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,” said Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. this afternoon. Read the two-page indictment here, but a warning there are some graphic descriptions of sex acts within it.

If found guilty, Oscar winner Weinstein could find himself behind bars for up to 25-years.

“The announcement of Mr. Weinstein’s Indictment, does not come as a surprise. Indeed, it was predicted by me this morning in an earlier statement we issued,” he also made a point of saying. “We also note of course that the Indictment merely mirrors the same charges in the criminal court Complaint and does not add anything to the case we did not already know.We asked the District Attorney for more time so that Mr Weinstein’s attorneys could gather the material needed to properly prepare him for his grand jury testimony but that request was denied.”
