According to a report from Deadline, the LA District Attorney is currently looking at two different cases of sexual misconduct involving the disgraced producer, Harvey Weinstein. The DA intends to press charges against the former Weinstein Company executive.
Reportedly, the cases were given to the DA by the BHPD (Beverly Hills Police Department), and the attorney will decide if there is enough evidence to charge him.
The news of his possible arraignment comes just three months after the New York Times and the New Yorker first brought out the scandal to the public’s knowledge.
Following their reports, notably, the case involving Rose McGowan and the settlements due to an incident at the Cannes Film Festival, Weinstein tumbled hard and fell out of the graces of Hollywood.
After these allegations, many other men followed suit including James Toback, Jeremy Piven, Ben Affleck, Charlies Rose, Matt Lauer, and many others.

After the world became privy to Weinstein’s alleged actions, he lost his role at the Weinstein Company, his wife – Georgina Chapman – left him, and he has been embroiled in cases all around the world including in the UK, Canada, and the USA.
In an attempt to engage in classic damage control, Weinstein went to a sexual rehabilitation facility to receive “treatment” but left one week after. Additionally, the New York Times alleged that the former Hollywood executive hired Israeli agents to spy on women.
Asia Argento and Rose McGowan took to Twitter to respond to the claims, stating that it was horrifying that government agents followed them to defend Harvey. Hollywood isn’t the only industry to come under for sexual misconduct, the restaurant industry has been fraught with accusations as well, with some of the most famous chefs in America having to step down from their respective companies.
