Police in Los Angeles have submitted three cases of alleged sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein to prosecutors, bringing the total to five cases the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office is investigating that involve the disgraced film producer, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Beverly Hills police separately brought two cases to prosecutors in December, the report notes.
“A district attorney’s spokesman declined to give further details on the LAPD cases submitted for review Feb. 1,” the paper reports. “Spokesman Greg Risling said it was unclear when a decision would be reached on whether to charge the producer.”
The report notes that investigations have also been launched against Weinstein in New York and London since sexual assault and rape allegations began surfacing in October.
“The NYPD late last year presented evidence before a grand jury; no criminal charges have yet been filed in any jurisdiction,” the story reports, adding: “The L.A. County district attorney in November formed a task force to investigate sexual assault claims arising from the entertainment industry.”
