New York City
Weinstein charges? The Manhattan district attorney’s office is expected to seek an indictment for sex crimes against disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, several news organizations reported this week. The New York Police Department has been investigating Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta’s accusation that Weinstein raped her twice in 2010. At a briefing last week, detectives said that they had corroborated parts of de la Huerta’s claims. At least 14 people in the past month have filed sexual assault reports against Weinstein with police in Los Angeles, New York, and London. Altogether, more than 60 women have accused Weinstein of some kind of sexual misconduct since a bombshell New York Times report in October. The New Yorker reported this week that Weinstein had hired private investigators and former Israeli spies to dig up dirt on his accusers and on journalists investigating him in order to keep their stories from going public.
