The Los Angeles Police Department has reportedly filed three sexual assault cases involving embattled producer Harvey Weinstein with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.
According to Variety, a spokesman declined to disclose which alleged incidents Weinstein, 65, could face criminal charges for. The LAPD reportedly submitted the cases on February 1. According to the magazine, the District Attorney’s Office can choose to file the case, decline to prosecute, request additional information, or refer the cases to the city attorney’s office if they deem the offenses misdemeanors.
Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office spokesman Greg Risling confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that all three cases are “under review.”
The news comes days after British authorities announced two new charges against Weinstein. As CrimeOnline previously reported, those charges came after a woman accused the producer of sexually assaulting her in Westminster in 2011 and during another incident which allegedly occurred outside the country.
Variety reported that the District Attorney’s office is also looking into two other cases against Weinstein that were submitted by the Beverly Hills Police Department. The 65-year-old also has police reports filed against him in New York.
The Weinstein camp has yet to comment on the sexual assault cases sent to the DA’s office.
