Washington D.C. [USA], May 25 (ANI): Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein on Friday was charged with rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct from encounters with two different women, reports Fox News.
The former American film producer earlier today surrendered before the New York Police Department (NYPD) to face the charges against him.
According to New York Daily, sources said, "Weinstein is expected to be charged with preying on Lucia Evans who told investigators that the former forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004."
The case was probed by the Manhattan District Attorney's office and New York City Police Department, the sources further said, adding that evidence related to Weinstein's possible financial fraud was presented before the jury.
More than 50 women, including stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd and Angelina Jolie, accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, which the former has denied. (ANI)
