"The charges against Harvey Weinstein in New York have expanded.
The former Hollywood mogul is already facing first-degree rape and other charges involving incidents with two women, in 2004 and 2013. Now, a grand jury in New York has charged Weinstein with allegedly committing a forcible sexual act against a third woman.
The latest charges pertain to an incident that allegedly happened in 2006, according to a statement from the office of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. The grand jury charged Weinstein 'with an additional count of Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree ... as well as two counts of Predatory Sexual Assault, a Class A-II felony which carries a minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.'
'A Manhattan Grand Jury has now indicted Harvey Weinstein on some of the most serious sexual offenses that exist under New York's Penal Law,' Vance said. 'This indictment is the result of the extraordinary courage exhibited by the survivors who have come forward.'"
