Harvey Weinstein Arraigned on Rape Charges

May 25, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein appeared in handcuffs today in a New York courtroom, where he was arraigned on two counts of rape and one count of a criminal sexual act, Reuters reports.

The charges stem from allegations by two of the more than 70 women who have accused Weinstein of sexual impropriety. The outcry over Weinstein’s alleged crimes prompted the #MeToo movement tthat has spread throughout Hollywood along with government and other industries.

Weinstein, 66, intends to plead not guilty to the charges, his attorney, Benjamin Brafman, told reporters outside the Manhattan courthouse.

“Prosecutors did not identify the two women, but said the crimes took place in 2004 and 2013. If convicted on the most serious charges, Weinstein could face between five and 25 years in prison,” Reuters reports.

Weinstein has denied having nonconsensual sex with anyone.

Reuters quotes prosecutor Joan Illuzzi, speaking during Weinstein’s arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court, saying: “This defendant used his position, money and power to lure young women into situations where he was able to violate them sexually.”
