LAPD Submits 3 More Cases of Alleged Sexual Assault by Harvey Weinstein

Otherwise, the previous 10-year status period still is in effect, as is likely the reality in these three cases. The Los Angeles Police Department forwarded three cases involving accusations against the movie producer to the district attorney's office earlier this month. The representative was not able to give details on the cases or the investigation at this time.

Weinstein, who has been accused by dozens of women of sexual misconduct or assault, is also being investigated by police in NY and London. Many of his accusers say they were victimized in Los Angeles. He has apologised for his treatment of women but has denied allegations of non-consensual sex.

The LAPD has submitted three sexual abuse cases to the L.A. County District Attorney's office for possible charges, a spokesman said Thursday.

The cases in California are being reviewed by a task force established by LA's district attorney Jackie Lacey specifically to deal with the Hollywood scandal.

With the case handed over by the LAPD on February 1, there is no timeline on when that review will be completed or what outcomes it may have besides prosecution.

Weinstein is also facing criminal investigations in NY and London.

The last time the NYPD tried to bring a sex-crime charge against Weinstein was in 2015 when a former beauty queen/model, Ambra Battilana, accused Weinstein of groping her in his office.

The DA's office launched a sexual abuse task force to evaluate cases involving Weinstein and other high-profile figures, such as director James Toback. She agreed to wear a wire and then recorded him seemingly admit to it.

"Subsequent investigative steps undertaken in order to establish intent were not successful".
