He has not been charged with any crimes, though police in NY have said publicly that they believe there is enough evidence to make an arrest.

'We do not believe an indictment of Mr. Weinstein is imminent.

Through it all, Weinstein denies any non-consensual sex and has reportedly been in treatment for sex addiction, in an ultra-expensive Arizona clinic.

Police detectives set up a sting where the woman recorded herself confronting Weinstein. "He'll put up a million dollars in cash and agree to wear a monitoring device, according to law enforcement officials".

We stand with the fearless women who came forward against Harvey Weinstein. Vance also urged other survivors to contact them.

In a statement to Mic, organizers of the Women's March called Friday "an important day in terms of visibility for all women whose lives have been devastated because of the actions of Harvey Weinstein", adding, "We seek justice for women and all people who have been harassed and abused in the workplace".

Some of Hollywood's most prominent actors, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, were among those to publicly accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct. A few, including Asia Argento and Rose McGowan, said they were raped.

"Today Harvey Weinstein will take his first step on his inevitable descent to hell". Weinstein raised his eyebrows as he heard it. Weinstein has consistently denied any allegations of nonconsensual sex.

Weinstein is accused of sexually assaulting de la Huerta on two occasions in NY, but has denied any and all allegations of non-consensual sex through his spokesperson. Handcuffed and silent, he ignored a a lineup of reporters snapping photos and shouting questions.

Brafman could soon be seen carrying Weinstein's passport, which he would later hand over to Illuzzi in court.

Brafman has said publicly that Weinstein was a "principal target" of an investigation being conducted by the USA attorney's office in Manhattan. Wearing a dark jacket draped over a baby-blue sweater, he seemed unsure on his feet and offered a mile-long stare as he turned to face the gallery before the proceeding. Harvey, 66, who has produced several acclaimed films like Shakespeare In Love and Crouching Tiger, was charged with first and third-degree rape in one case and first-degree rape in the second case, reported CNN.

Mr. Weinstein faces criminal charges in connection with accusations that he forced one woman, Lucia Evans, to perform oral sex on him during a business meeting in 2004, and that he raped another woman, who has not been publicly identified.

Weinstein has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting movie stars and employees of his former namesake company over the course of decades and then paying them or coercing them to stay silent. The revelations sparked a broader reckoning with sexism in Hollywood that has since touched other industries. The Weinstein Company has since gone into bankruptcy, and other investigations into his behavior are open in Los Angeles and London.

Major figures in media and politics have lost their jobs or had their reputations tarnished by allegations that they subjected women to unwanted advances or outright assaults.

This report on a developing story will be updated.
