Disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein took biographies when he turned himself in

Disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein took biographies when he turned himself in

On Friday, police in NY made the first arrest of the #MeToo movement: Harvey Weinstein was arrested and charged with rape, a criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct, based on the allegations of two women.

The other case involves allegations by Lucia Evans, a former aspiring actress who told the New Yorker that Weinstein forced her to give him oral sex in 2004, the Times reported.

CNN's source said Weinstein will be charged will "first- and third-degree rape in one case and a first-degree sex act in a second case".

Harvey Weinstein is expected to surrender Friday morning to authorities in NY on sex assault charges.

Harvey Weinstein appeared in court Friday morning on sex crime charges based on two alleged incidents where he is accused of forcing women into sexual activity.

In a statement, The Women's March said they hope the courage of the women who came forward will "continue to inspire others to break their silence".

The NYPD and the Manhattan district attorney obviously believe they have a case.

Weinstein earlier turned himself in at a lower Manhattan police station around 7:25 a.m. EDT (1125 GMT).

More than 70 women have accused the co-founder of the Miramax film studio and Weinstein Co of sexual misconduct, including rape, with some allegations dating back decades.

During the interview, Sciutto also played a clip of Weinstein's lawyer, Benjamin Branfman telling the press, "Mr. Weinstein did not invent the casting couch in Hollywood".

Besides the immediate satisfaction of seeing Weinstein face justice, McGowan said she firmly believes that his story, and the cultural natural disaster that followed, will have a profound and lasting impact on how society treats powerful abusers who engage in sexual misconduct. If they find evidence of that Weinstein could face federal charges.

According to reports, Weinstein's arrest will be followed by a grand jury investigation, alongside other ongoing investigations against him in Los Angeles and London.

Argento - who claimed she was raped by Weinstein in Cannes, France, in the '90s - tweeted a video of the former executive walking into the police station. "We look forward to seeing justice prevail". He was the cult leader of Hollywood, I would say.

She added that seeing him in handcuffs, despite the fact he could be seen smiling, is "a very good feeling".

Dozens of women have made allegations against the 66-year-old, including rape and sexual assault, and giving rise to the #MeToo movement.

This case may be different, especially if Weinstein's financials and emails point to his guilt.

NY police previously confirmed another credible rape allegation after "Boardwalk Empire" actress Paz de la Huerta accused the former producer of raping her twice at her NY apartment in late 2010.

The accusers showed a united front on social media, with Rose making a number of televised appearances to discuss his defeat more than seven months after the allegations first broke.

Harvey Weinstein's choice of reading material for his surrender to NY authorities on Friday drew attention to a pair of entertainment biographies. When she got there, Weinstein appeared; Evans recalled the assault, "I said, over and over, 'I don't want to do this, stop, don't.' I tried to get away, but maybe I didn't try hard enough". "It was rape and sexual assault".

"Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".
