Getty Harvey Weinstein appeared in court today on charges of sexual abuse rape and sexual misconduct

NY police have previously confirmed an active Weinstein investigation regarding Evans, who was an aspiring actress at the time, and a credible rape allegation after "Boardwalk Empire" actress Paz de la Huerta accused the former producer of raping her twice at her NY apartment in late 2010.
Weinstein has denied ever engaging in nonconsensual sex. He is now out on bail, wearing a monitoring device.
Embattled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to police on Friday morning on criminal charges including rape and sexual misconduct.
Weinstein was understood to have had his mugshots and fingerprints taken before being driven away in an SUV from the station, close to his former Miramax office in Tribeca and the townhouse he once shared with his estranged wife.
Weinstein's attorney, Ben Brafman, released a statement to ET following the arraignment, which reads: "Mr. Weinstein has always maintained that he has never engaged in non-consensual sexual behavior with anyone".
"Today's charges reflect significant progress in this active, ongoing investigation", said District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. "We believe that they are not factually supported by the evidence".
In its statement, the New York Police Department thanked "these courageous survivors for their courage to come forward and seek justice".
Lucia Evans told The New Yorker in a story published in October that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex during a daytime meeting at his New York office in 2004, the summer before her senior year at Middlebury College.
After turning himself in, Weinstein was arraigned on charges of first-degree rape and third-degree rape and a first-degree criminal sex act.
"The man who pinned me down had handcuffs on him today", she said triumphantly at another point in the interview.
"I would rather be ready for that kind of coverage and his trial, than just coverage of him golfing in Scottsdale, so I will be ready for it", she said.
It was a carefully choreographed performance.
Weinstein entered a not guilty plea and "expects to be fully exonerated", Brafman added. He kept his gaze lowered amid a barrage of shouted questions.

The fate of Harvey Weinstein's former company had been in limbo for months, as it sought to unwind itself from its co-founder, and then find a buyer.
The movement was prompted by an invitation from actress Alyssa Milano on Twitter, asking those who had been sexually harassed or assaulted to reply "Me Too". "I was 21 years old". Creative Artists Agency, a major talent firm, has since said in a statement, "We apologize to any person the agency let down".
