LAPD Sends Three Harvey Weinstein Cases to District Attorney

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Los Angeles police have sent three sexual assault cases concerning disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein to the city’s district attorney for possible charges, a spokesperson for the D.A.’s office confirmed to TheWrap.

The move comes three months after the D.A.’s office announced the launch of a task force tackling sexual assault cases in Hollywood. The task force is primarily focused on cases concerning Weinstein and director James Toback, who are both being investigated by police for alleged incidents of sexual harassment and assault in Los Angeles and New York. Weinstein is also being investigated in London by Scotland Yard.

Details of the cases sent to the D.A. were not disclosed, though it has been previously reported that LAPD was investigating sexual assault claims from 2013 and accusations of “lewd acts” by Weinstein in 2015. The cases are being reviewed and could either be picked up by the district attorney or sent back for further investigation.
