Harvey Weinstein's legal troubles are continuing to grow. Kaja Sokola claims Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her when she was just 16-years-old according to her new civil complaint, obtained by Variety and published on the 19th of December, Thursday.

According to her complaint, Sokola's modeling agency set up a meeting with Harvey to talk about her career, however, after he picked her up, he took her to his apartment in Soho rather than to a restaurant like was initially planned. She was a minor at that time.

When they were finally alone together in the room, she claims Harvey pressured her into allowing him to molest her and also forced her to touch his penis. Terrified of what was happening, Sokola claims she said she didn't want to do it anymore, and he resisted.

The complaint went on to say that Sokola felt as though she was tricked into having such an altercation with Harvey. She never planned on meeting him in such circumstances. Sokola's claims were filed as part of a class-action lawsuit in 2018.

The woman is now 33-years-old, and she alleges it occurred in 2002, seventeen years ago. When the class-action lawsuit was first revealed, Harvey Weinstein's attorney, Ben Brafman, described the lawsuit and claims as "preposterous."

According to the woman in her complaint, she moved to New York City from Poland to work as a model. She explained that after she finally came to the city, she was sexually abused by the disgraced movie mogul, and has been living with the residue of the incident since it happened all those years ago.

Currently, Harvey Weinstein is awaiting his trial in January 2020, for charges of sexual abuse and sexual assault. Earlier this year, he also just finished settling a massive multi-million dollar lawsuit involving several different women.

Harvey sparked additional controversy when he gave an interview to New York Post, in which he described himself as a "pioneer," of bringing women into movies in a leading role. Harvey's statement was criticized by several celebrities, including one of his accusers, Ashley Judd.

    I'm so tired of these cases. Harvey Weinstein is free as a bird and settled financially while old bill Cosby got sent to prison for 20 -30 year old charges. Wasn't Cosby denied a bond and made to stay in jail until his trial? Is Weinstein out because he got a bail he paid to not have to be in custody? I'm not clear on that issue.Has the statue of limitations run out for all of Weinstein's victims? Why is he allowed to be free by using a fake injury as his excuse when he was spotted shopping without his walker? He is clearly trying to get sympathy. He doesn't deserve any special treatment because Cosby got none n he is old,sick with dementia while Weinstein is faking an injury. Are they gonna send Weinstein or Spacey or any of the other guys with money accused or are they gonna get special treatment? What's good for one is good for them all, treat all the rapist n molesters the same. If one doesn't get a bond none should. Aren't they all basically accused of the same sick stuff? Let's be fair justice system......
