  • Weinstein wins dismissal of criminal charge for alleged sex assault

The revelation of numerous allegations about Weinstein, beyond the three women involved in the criminal case, helped spark the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault.

The Latest on the Manhattan district attorney's decision to drop some charges against Harvey Weinstein.

Goldberg insisted Evans has told the truth and disputed that she either showed Weinstein her breasts or misled investigators.

Actress Lucia Evans alleges that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex in 2004.

Bradman accused Evans of lying to the grand jury during her testimony and called for the district attorney to look into prosecuting her for perjury. Weinstein's lawyer Ben Brafman asked the judge to review all of the detective's work, but the judge has yet to respond to that request.

The disgraced movie mogul was accused in Manhattan state court of allegedly nonconsensual sexual behavior toward three women.

The letter said the detective told the witness she had no reason to cooperate with prosecutors and "less is more".

An attorney for Weinstein has said that he plans to file motions to dismiss each of the remaining charges.

Weinstein's lawyer Brafman told the judge he believed Evans had lied to the grand jury and said he believed a police detective had attempted to influence the case by keeping a witness from testifying about her misstatements.

Weinstein's lawyers and prosecutors had been wrangling over the part of the indictment pertaining to Evans' allegations over the last few weeks in closed-door meetings and sealed court papers. She said she had initially met Weinstein at a restaurant in Manhattan earlier that summer.

Mr Brafman also said he would investigate what he said had been "perjury" before the grand jury which indicted Mr Weinstein, as well as the conduct of a NY police officer who had worked on the case.

Weinstein is free on $1 million bail.

The third accuser in the case is Mimi Haleyi, a former production assistant that claims he sexually assaulted her in 2006.

This decision comes after Weinstein's lawyers argued that there are legal problems with the criminal case against him.

Prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon insisted the rest of the case is strong and said the district attorney's office was looking into the possibility of bringing additional charges.

Evidence has been found, according to the defense, that Evans sent several emails indicating that the sex act was consensual and the two carried on an affair for many years, WCBS 880's Marla Diamond reported.

A Manhattan judge allowed the dismissal of count six of the indictment which alleges Weinstein committed a criminal sexual act by forcing accuser Lucia Evans to perform oral sex on him back in 2004.

New York Police officials poured on the pressure, too, saying publicly that they believed they had gathered ample evidence to make an arrest.
