Harvey Weinstein was hit with additional sex crime charges Monday tied to a new, third accuser, that could send him to prison for life.
Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. got new indictments against the pervy producer for two counts of predatory sexual assault and one count of criminal sexual act in the first degree for a forcible sexual act against the unnamed woman in 2006. She testified before a grand jury on Friday.
The top predatory sex act charges mean Weinstein faces life behind bars, according to the DA. He had been looking at up to 25 years on felony charges of rape and a criminal sex act, to which he’s pleaded not guilty.
Those charges stemmed from allegations that he forced actress Lucia Evans to perform oral sex on him in 2004, and raped a second woman at a DoubleTree hotel in Manhattan in 2013.
