The Los Angeles Police Department has submitted at least three cases against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein to the District Attorney; signaling an arrest of the disgraced studio executive could happen at any moment.
According to Variety, the cases likely center around accusations the Democratic super-donor raped an Italian model inside a Los Angeles hotel in 2013. The statute of limitations in California for sexual assault is ten years.
“The LAPD submitted the three cases on Feb. 1. The D.A.’s office can choose to file a case or decline to prosecute, but it may also request additional investigation or refer cases to the city attorney’s office for possible misdemeanor prosecution,” writes Variety.
The announcement comes as Weinstein faces similar investigations into his widespread sexual abuse in New York City and London.
Weinstein’s epic fall rocked the country as high-profile cases of sexual abuse scanning decades revealed Hollywood’s code of silence surrounding harassment and abuses of power throughout the industry.
