Harvey Weinstein Charged with Additional Sex Crimes, Facing Life in Prison

By TheBlast Staff

Harvey Weinstein is now facing a lifetime of imprisonment after the Manhattan District Attorney announced a slew of additional charges against the disgraced producer.

The D.A. just announced Weinstein was charged with an additional count for an alleged forcible sexual act against a woman in 2006 and two other counts of predatory sexual assault.

In reference to the new charges, Cyrus Vance said "This indictment is the result of the extraordinary courage exhibited by the survivors who have come forward. Our investigation continues."

According to the indictment, Weinstein's already facing charges that stem from a period in 2004 when he allegedly forced a woman to give him oral copulation. Another incident allegedly occurred on March 18, 2013 when Weinstein "engaged in sexual intercourse with a second person known to the Grand Jury without said person’s consent."

The D.A. says the additional charges carry a "minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum sentence of life imprisonment."

Weinstein had already been indicted on multiple sex crimes, and now the complete rundown of charges are as follows:

  • Predatory Sexual Assault, a class A-II felony, 2 counts

  • Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree, a class B felony, 2 counts

  • Rape in the First Degree, a class B felony, 1 count

  • Rape in the Third Degree, a class E felony, 1 count

Back in May, Weinstein pled not guilty to the charges against him.
