Top Hollywood Mogul producer, Harvey Weinstein has been charged with rape and other sex crimes as he surrendered today to New York City police.
The disgraced mega-producer who has been accused of numerous of sex offences was charged with one count of first-degree rape, one count of third-degree rape, one count of criminal sexual act in the first degree. These charges are for two incidents — one in 2013 and another in 2004.
A judge set Weinstein’s bond at $10 million. Part of the conditions for his bail is that he also had to surrender his passport and will wear a GPS device.
According to Benjamin Braffman, Weinstein’s lawyer who spoke to reporters, Weinstein plans to enter a not guilty plea saying that he is confident his client will be exonerated. He added that he wants jurors “who are not consumed by the movement,” alluding to #MeToo.
The news of Harvey’s arrest has been greeted with relief and celebrations. One of his accusers, Actress Rose McGowan tweeted, “We got you, Harvey Weinstein, we got you.”
