Harvey Weinstein could face life in prison after new sex crime charges

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.
