LAPD Sends 3 Sex Assault Cases To District Attorney

The hammer may finally be coming down on disgraced studio executive Harvey Weinstein.

Barely a week after Actress Uma Thurman told the New York Times about being sexually assaulted by Weinstein, the Wrap is reporting that Los Angeles police have sent three sexual assault cases involving Weinstein to the DA's office.

The escalation comes three months after the DA's office announced the launch of a task force tackling sexual assault cases in Hollywood. The task force is focused on cases involving Weinstein and director James Toback.

Both men have been accused of assaulting, harassing and groping literally hundreds of women.

Weinstein

Since the New York Times first reported on Weinstein's sordid history of settling with his victims in exchange for them signing NDAs, several law enforcement agencies opened investigations into the one-time mogul. The NYPD - which was close to charging Weinstein in 2015 before Manhattan Attorney Cyrus J Vance Jr. quashed the investigation - was investigating Weinstein, as was the Beverly Hills Police Department and Scotland Yard, reportedly.

According to the Wrap, details of the cases sent to the DA were not disclosed, though it had been reported that the department was investigating an incident from 2013 and accusations of "lewd acts" from 2015. California no longer has a statute of limitations for rape. Once reviewed, the cases will either be formally picked up by the DA - which would then need to secure an indictment from a grand jury - or they could be sent back to the LAPD for further investigation.

Weinstein has formally denied all accusations of non-consensual sex.

The LA DA office is the same incompetent office that prosecuted OJ Simpson and failed miserably. Even if the leftie Democrat LA DA, Jackie Lacey prosecutes, Weinstein's multi-million dollar legal team will outsmart and outmaneuver them like crazy similar to OJ lawyers whipping the two losers Marcia Clark and Darden.

Asking if the glove fits and watching his fake struggle to slide the glove on, had to be the stupidest DA move in the history of crim law.

They should move the case to Iowa or Montana for a 'fair trial.'

It seems it all comes down to - He said; She said. It will be a colossal waste of taxpayer money.  Women, we are better off if they are not in the workplace.

cunts better hope I'm not on the jury cause i'd let this guy walk.  Everyone of them were whoring themselves until they were irrelevant, then come the tears.  Fuck that.  Innocent.

Actually, there many women who said no to him. Gwyneth Paltrow was one.  There were many others.  

He pulled these shenanigans for at least 30 years.

It wasn't always a quid pro quo, with him offering parts in movies.  Sometimes he just forced himself on these women, assuming he could get away with it because he was quite powerful.  

He hired agents from the Mossad to track down women who said no to him or who filed complaints about him.  If women didn't submit to him he made sure their careers were ruined by placing very negative stories in the press so the women would never get any more parts.   Numerous women came forward about this.  

You are saying there are no such stories?   

Perhaps you have been living under a rock.

Your inflammatory and mysogenistic comment is likely correct in a large fraction of the cases.....but remember that there were a bunch of women that complained to the law when it happened, and saw their cases quashed by dirty politics.

Those women were not "whoring themselves until they were irrelevant", at least not so far as this case.  Those cases should be prosecuted.   The women who waited till they were irrelevant should be put on the spot for not clamoring for justice earlier....might have saved a few other women from abuse.

And yes, the dirty politicians who snuffed his cases out in the past should hang right along with him.

Rich well connected Jew made poor by studio losing money = Pariah

Now if we can just "graft" this to the bankers in Manhattan and the worst rotting scum in Washington D.C. we will have a "WINNER"!

That is if it's still the year 2007!!!

Who cares about Hollywood? At least they're molesting on their own dime.

Break out the arrest warrants for Washington, the publicly paid perverts.

And big-time fashion designer Kenneth Cole, friend of Weinstein, resigns today from his role as chair of an AIDS research charity (any affiliation with the Clintons, I wonder...).

All these resignations are important, and soon we will be able to connect the dots and form a picture. President Trump has been drawing the dots.

Toback is a jew also. This is obviously a case of anti-semite deplorable Trump supporters trying to oppress and victimize successful jews.  We hate them because they are successful. They are victims. We must atone by sending Israel a few extra billions, invade Iran and Russia, fund dozens of more holocaust museums and double the requirements that our youth make holocaust museum pilgrimages, require annual readings of the Diary of Anne Frank, Ellie the Weasel's "Night" and ban all required readings of that ani-semite William Shakespear.

Laws simply do not apply to big Dims or anyone tied to Clinton’s.   Look for the “HQ” special and Swiss bAnk acct payoff from the hebs.

Did you know that a "woman" gamer won a massive gaming tournament and has won over $20 million as a "woman". "She" also has a Guinness World Record as the top earning "female gamer" in the world.

The problem is that pesky Y chromosome "she" carries.

I only post this here because how long will it be that you will be arrested for sexual harassment for calling a transcrewup a he instead of she.

How about we just get rid of the genders in the Olympics and have everyone compete together. We'll see how many gold medals the women win.
