Harvey Weinstein Released on $1M Bail Over Rape and Sexual Abuse Charges

Over and above 80 women have stepped forward with allegations of sexual harassment and criminal sexual assaults against Harvey Weinstein around the globe following explosive revelations in The New Yorker and The New York Times last fall, which included countless models and actresses and other illustrious figures, but a mass of the confrontations took place way back for it to get any trial today. Some of the victims are actresses, like Rose McGowan, who said Harvey Weinstein raped her back in 1997 in Utah, Natassia Malthe, who said she was assailed by him in a London hotel room in 2008 and Annabella Sciorra, who said Weinstein raped her in her own New York apartment in 1992.

After spending many months trying to take cover from the repercussions and swerve numerous inspections into his sexual assault and rape accusations, the condemned kingpin producer, Harvey Weinstein, 66, turned himself into the New York Police Department early Friday morning.

Many hands with cameras fenced the once-dynamo producer into a ringmaster. Ironically enough, he found himself to be the heart of an attention that he would not be particularly keen on much nor could have the control in his hands. Ignoring the shouts of his name, he was seen trudging into the police station, with books in his hands that included “Elia Kazan,” which is about the renowned film director and “Something Wonderful: Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Broadway Revolution,” which is about the Broadway musical pair of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II.

Later that day, Harvey Weinstein was rightfully charged with first and third degree rape, sexual abuse and a criminal sex act in the first degree, who would be drawn against up to 25 years in prison if he were to be sentenced of the charges.

When his prosecutor, Benjamin Brafman, was first got in touch with to comment about the indictments late Thursday, he refused to say a word. However, Brafman did formerly say that Harvey Weinstein has consistently negated any allegations of “non-consensual sex.”

Following the charges of rape and sexual misconduct against Weinstein in New York, he was released on $1 Million cash bail. He was asked to hand over his passport and wear a GPS tracker that allows him to be tracked at all times; he was permitted to only travel between New York and Connecticut, unless otherwise granted permission to do so.

According to the onlookers, Harvey Weinstein seemed to be rather pale and had been staring into space during which prosecuting attorneys sketched out his bail settlement.

The case was then adjourned until July 30.
