  • Harvey Weinstein Turns Himself in to Police to Face Sex Crime Charge in NYC

On Megyn Kelly Today, when asked what she would like to say to Weinstein if he might be listening, McGowan said, "We got you".

Harvey Weinstein arrives at the first precinct while turning himself to authorities following allegations of sexual misconduct.

"My job is not to defend behaviour", he said. Evans, who was a college student and aspiring actress at the time, had only agreed to a meeting at Weinstein's Tribeca offices because a female casting executive was scheduled to speak with her. That's not what this is about.

Media caption " It's a concrete slap in the face of abuse of power", says actor Rose McGowan on Harvey Weinstein being charged.

Some said Friday that it was remarkable to see Weinstein face charges.

'Today, Harvey Weinstein will take his first step on his inevitable descent to hell, ' actress Asia Argento said.

The allegations, first reported by the New York Times and the New Yorker a year ago, gave rise to the #MeToo movement in which hundreds of women have publicly accused powerful men in business, government and entertainment.

"I haven't come out of the shock of it yet", she said. The felony charges concern "forcible sexual acts against two women in 2013 and 2004, respectively", the Manhattan District Attorney's Office announced Friday.

The new cases which are brought to light every day would not have been possible without the seeds sown by #MeToo, however, they are also suggestive of the continued and widespread prevalence of sexual abuse and harassment against women in all walks of life.

His bail was set at $1 million cash (or $10 million bond; a check for $1 million is apparently being deposited this morning), with a 24/7 monitoring device paid for by him.

"I'm glad we're finally seeing something that looks like closure", she said, a 55-year-old former film producer, who heads a parenting and education NGO in Los Angeles. The New York Police Department, which made the arrest, told Yahoo Entertainment: "The NYPD does not release the mugshot of anyone arrested in New York City".

Speaking to reporters after the hearing, Weinstein lawyer Brafman signaled that he intends to attempt to undermine the credibility of Weinstein's accusers.

The rape charges involve a woman who has not come forward publicly.

Federal prosecutors opened a criminal investigation into Weinstein's alleged sex crimes, the Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week.

The unravelling of Weinstein's predatory past began with news reports outlining his history of sexual misconduct with women, which prompted social media outrage and protests that have since spread far beyond Hollywood.

Almost 100 women have now accused Weinstein of crimes ranging from sexual harassment to assault and rape going back decades. Weinstein has apologized for his behavior but denied accusations of 'non-consensual sex'.

It would be the first criminal case against Weinstein since the revelations about him erupted last October and sparked the cultural "reckoning" that became the MeToo movement.
