Harvey Weinstein accused of forcible sex act by third woman

Harvey Weinstein listens during a court proceeding in New York on May 25

Prosecutors have not named, in court papers, any of the women accusing Weinstein of sexual assault.

Mr Weinstein was first charged in May and at the time his lawyer said he intends to enter a plea of not guilty to the first two charges.

The Manhattan District Attorney's office filed new charges against Weinstein as the week began, including a new count of criminal sexual act in the first degree and a forcible sexual act against another woman in 2006. He's also being charged with two counts of predatory sexual assault, a Class A-II felony, which carries a sentence from ten years minimum, and a maximum of life in prison.

Weinstein was previously charged with first degree criminal sexual act as well as two acts of rape in the first and three degree for incidents, involving two women, that occurred in 2004 and 2013.

Bill Nelson expects to oppose Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee
A nominee's view on "whether or not they respect precedent will tell me a lot about whether or not they would overturn Roe v. That means Democrats have a steep hill to climb if they intend to preserve the decisions on groundbreaking cases like Roe V.

"A Manhattan grand jury has now indicted Harvey Weinstein on some of the most serious sexual offences that exist under New York's penal law", District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said in a statement. Weinstein's attorney, Benjamin Brafman, did not immediately return a Moneyish request for comment on the latest charges. Weinstein is now facing three more charges for attacks on two women in 2004 and 2013.

Per the indictment, he is accused of forcibly performing oral sex on the woman on July 10, 2006.

The #MeToo movement has seen people around the world come forward with cases of sexual mistreatment, leading to the downfall of powerful men across industries, including Oscar victor Kevin Spacey.

The Weinstein investigation is ongoing, Vance added.

Several men in the entertainment and media industries have since been publicly accused of a range of sexual misconduct and retreated from the public eye.

Weinstein has denied ever having non-consensual sex.
