Prosecutors review 3 sex assault accusations against Harvey Weinstein

LA police send Weinstein sex assault cases to prosecutors

Three sexual assault cases against film producer Harvey Weinstein have been presented to prosecutors in LA, the District Attorney's Office said on Thursday.

Share this article: Harvey Weinstein has allegedly sexually assaulted or engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior with dozens of women.

Last month police in Beverly Hills passed the results of their investigations into two cases involving allegations against Weinstein to the same prosecutor.

The three newer cases were referred to the DA on February 1, but an announcement wasn't made until a week later, the broadcaster reported.

Police in London and NY have also been investigating numerous allegations of sexual offences against Weinstein, some dating back decades.

It is for the district attorney to decide whether any criminal charges should be filed.

District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in November she had created a specialized task force in her office to evaluate cases of "sexual abuse in the entertainment industry". He has apologised for his treatment of women but has denied allegations of non-consensual sex.

The Weinstein scandal, which first hit last October in a shocking New York Times exposé, was the catalyst for the #MeToo, and later the Time's Up, movement. The super-producer was subsequently fired from the company he co-runs with brother Bob and ostracized by Hollywood and the entertainment industry as a whole.

The latest complaint against Weinstein saw a long-time friend and collaborator Uma Thuman coming forward to accuse him and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino of a long-running pattern of harassment and abuse.
