According to CNN broadcaster, Weinstein will visit the New York Police Department later in the day, where he will be charged with first- and third-degree rape in one case and first-degree criminal sexual act in another.
Previous reports indicated that the charges were expected to be less serious.
I see Harvey Weinstein is surrendering himself to the police today. A courtesy I wouldn't allow. Why aren't the police banging on him door in an early morning raid?— Colin (@droftes) 25 мая 2018 г.
Good the favor will surely get returned when he get to jail! Suggestions for Weinstein a crotchless orange jump suit!— Vincent (@VloVincent) 25 мая 2018 г.
Since media started to publish stories on Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct in October, numerous women have come forward claiming to have been harassed by the producer, including famous Hollywood actresses Angelina Jolie and Uma Thurman. Weinstein was dismissed from his own company, and the authorities of New York launched the investigation.
