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.
