Watch: Harvey Weinstein Charged With New Count of Sexual Assault in Los Angeles

Harvey Weinstein Is Charged With Sexual Assault In Los Angeles, As ...

The former movie mogul is known to be struggling in prison as he serves his lengthy sentence.

Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who is currently serving a 23 year prison sentence in New York for rape and sexual assault, was just hit with an additional sexual assault charge in Los Angeles, California.

Daily Mail reported that Los Angeles prosecutors have charged Weinstein with sexual battery by restraint over an 2010 incident in which he allegedly assaulted a woman at the Beverly Hills hotel. Prosecutors have added this charge to their case against Weinstein, which includes two separate incidents that occurred in 2013.

“We are continuing to build and strengthen our case,” said Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey. “As we gather corroborating evidence, we have reached out to other possible sexual assault victims. If we find new evidence of a previously unreported crime, as we did here, we will investigate and determine whether additional criminal charges should be filed.”

The latest victim was reportedly initially interviewed by police as a corroborating witness, but she has since provided them with more details that showed them her assault occurred within the 10-year statute of limitations.
Weinstein is known to be struggling in prison as he serves his lengthy sentence, with him testing positive for coronavirus last month. The 68 year-old former movie mogul has since recovered from COVID-19, which has come to a surprise to those who know him given his poor health.

“We lost contact with him and were unable to get in touch with him after he tested positive because he was placed in isolation and under quarantine,” a source close to Weinstein said. “He had a fever and cough. The man is in poor health normally speaking, and has multiple pre-existing conditions. Honestly, I was very concerned.”

“I can’t believe he made it through this,” the insider added. “I was definitely thinking this would be the end of him.”

Weinstein was known for being one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, helming such award-winning movies as Shakespeare In Love and The Lord Of The Rings, before he was hit with numerous allegations of sexual assault at the start of the #MeToo movement. Given his advanced age and poor health, it is likely that he will not survive his lengthy prison sentence.
