Rose McGowan didn't think Weinstein would ever be charged with rape

Harvey Weinstein Turns Himself in to Police to Face Sex Crime Charge in NYC Harvey Weinstein Arrested, Charged with Rape and Sexual Assault

The "Jawbreaker" star believes that Weinstein may still be pulling some strings, noting that he turned himself in on the Friday before Memorial Day, "a slow news weekend", and said that she "absolutely, completely" believes that Manhattan DA Cy Vance may not have pursued charges against Weinstein had he not allegedly been shamed into doing so.

The 66-year-old father of five will then go before a judge in Manhattan Supreme Court, where a grand jury handed down indictment charges of first- and third-degree rape and criminal sex act.

"My job is not to defend behaviour", he said. "Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances", reads the statement. That's not what this is about.

Weinstein has maintained his innocence and claimed that all of his sexual encounters have been consensual, and previously claimed that McGowan demanded a hefty settlement to keep her allegations quiet.

Our sources say prosecutors are looking at at least one actress whom Weinstein flew from one state to another. Asia Argento, who said Weinstein sexually assaulted her, said on Friday: "We, the women, finally have real hope for justice".

Once one of the most powerful men in the film industry, Weinstein had always been rumored to have engaged in sexual misconduct - but it was not until reports in The New York Times and The New Yorker surfaced decades' worth of sexual assault and harassment allegations that the producer experienced his precipitate fall from grace last autumn.

"At a certain point, you have to think about the greater good of humanity, of womankind", she said. "The arrest and ensuing charges are the result of a joint investigation between the NYPD and the Manhattan District Attorney's Office". We believe that they are constitutionally flawed.

Mr Weinstein was released on a $1m bail bond.

Sexual assault cases, particularly those that allegedly happened years ago, are notoriously hard to prosecute and often lack substantive forensic evidence.

Evans told The New Yorker magazine he forced her to perform oral sex during a daytime meeting in his office.

Dozens of women have come forward with stories accusing him of sexual misdeeds ranging from harassment to assault.

Weinstein is charged with rape, sexual misconduct, sex abuse and the committing of a criminal sex act against two women, the New York Police Department said in a statement, which did not identify the women.

In its statement, the New York Police Department thanked "these courageous survivors for their courage to come forward and seek justice".

The powerful mogul became an outcast last fall after investigations from the NY Times and the New Yorker revealed a history of intimidating women and allegations of sexual assault.

Weinstein entered a not guilty plea and "expects to be fully exonerated", Brafman added.

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

The exact nature of the charges being brought against him by Manhattan prosecutors was unclear.
