Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Investigation Goes To Grand Jury

Harvey Weinstein is preparing to face more sexual assault charges, but this time on the West coast. According to law enforcement sources, the Los Angeles County D.A.’s office tasked an investigative grand jury for the last 6 months relative to the various sexual assault investigations launched by the LAPD and Beverly Hills PD over 2 years ago.

The DA’s office reportedly has 8 cases under review, including a 2013 rape allegation made by an Italian actress. They believe to have enough evidence in at least one of the cases to justify filing criminal charges against the movie producer.

Weinstein is also facing five separate criminal charges in New York and goes on trial there on January 6. The charges include predatory sexual assault, a criminal sex act, and rape. He faces life in prison if convicted. Weinstein maintains his not guilty plea.

A spokesperson for Weinstein said in a statement, “The investigation into these LA cases has been going on for over two years. These cases are old, weak and lack evidence… if prosecutors move forward on any of these cases then it would seem their motives are more political than legal.”
