Harvey Weinstein Indicted on Rape & Sex Crime Charges by Grand Jury

Harvey Weinstein has been indicted by a grand jury on two counts of rape and a sex crime charge.

“A Grand Jury has voted to indict Harvey Weinstein on charges of Rape in the First and Third Degrees, and Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree,” said Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. regarding the 66-year-old disgraced film producer this afternoon (May 30), Deadline reports.

“This indictment brings the defendant another step closer to accountability for the crimes of violence with which he is now charged,” Cyrus added. “Our office will try this case not in the press, but in the courtroom where it belongs. The defendant’s recent assault on the integrity of the survivors and the legal process is predictable. We are confident that when the jury hears the evidence, it will reject these attacks out of hand.”

Harvey had previously announced that he would not testify before a grand jury.

If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison.

Rose McGowan Addresses Harvey Weinstein's Impending Arrest

Rose McGowan is happy that justice is finally being served.

The 44-year-old actress – who has previously accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her – is responding after news broke on Thursday (May 24) that the 66-year-old disgraced producer will reportedly be surrendering to the police on sex crime charges.

“I, and so many of Harvey Weinstein’s survivors, had given up hope that our rapist would be held accountable by law. Twenty years ago, I swore that I would right this wrong. Today we are one step closer to justice,” Rose said via Variety.

Harvey is expected to surrender himself to police on Friday, May 25 in New York City in connection with Lucia Evans‘ sexual assault case when he allegedly forced her to perform oral sex on him during an audition back in 2004.

“We were young women who were assaulted by Weinstein and later terrorised by his vast network of complicity,” Rose continued. “I stand with my fellow survivors. May this give hope to all victims and survivors everywhere that are telling their truths.”
