LAPD Submits Three Harvey Weinstein Sex Cases to District Attorney

In addition to the five Weinstein cases, the office is also evaluating five cases involving director James Toback - three from Beverly Hills and two from the LAPD.

POLICE in Los Angeles have submitted three sexual assault cases against disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein to prosecutors, the District Attorney's Office said yesterday.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and abuse, including rape, by multiple, often high-profile women, but he has yet to be charged with any crime.

Los Angeles District Attorney's Office spokesman Greg Risling confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that all three cases are "under review".

The D.A.'s office is also considering two other cases against Weinstein that were submitted by the Beverly Hills Police Department.

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

Weinstein's studio, Miramax, was behind such projects as the 1994 film "Pulp Fiction" and the "Project Runway" television series.

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

The New York Times in October reported on allegations of sexual misconduct by Weinstein, before the Los Angeles Police Department revealed its investigation. The statute of limitations in California for sexual assault is ten years.

The Weinstein scandal touched off a deluge of allegations against powerful men in entertainment, politics and the media, forcing many industries to re-examine workplace policies.

His representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"At one point he forcibly grabbed the back of my head so that I could not move and started kissing my face and my neck", Upton went on.
