Boardwalk Empire performer, Paz De La Huerta, is one of the most recent women to accuse disgraced producer, Harvey Weinstein, of rape. However, unlike the others, there may be enough evidence to indict him on charges.
According to a report from Vanity Fair published today, due to De La Huerta’s accusations against the former executive at The Weinstein Company, the NYPD launched a successful investigation.
Officer Nicholas DiGaudio said to the publication that he believes there is “enough to make an arrest.” Paz De La Huerta revealed that the alleged rape happened back in November of 2010, exactly seven years ago.
Weinstein offered to drive her home one night after they ran into each other at the Standard High Line Hotel in Manhattan, New York. However, when they arrived, he began kissing her and she “brushed him away.”
According to the actress, “he pushed (her) on to the bed, ” and pulled his pants down after lifting up her skirt, and she was terrified.
“It wasn’t consensual” and it all “happened so quickly.” De La Huerta said she lie there in total shock. The second alleged encounter happened in December of the same year when he showed up to her apartment building after calling her repeatedly.
He said to her “let’s talk about this in your apartment, ” and when they arrived, he got on top of her.
She said, “I don’t want to do this” and “he kept humping me.” During a press conference on the 3rd of November, Chief of Police Robert K. Boyce stated they have an “actual case here.”
At the moment, they’re gathering evidence to arrest him because the producer is out of state; they need a warrant to bring him back to the Big Apple.
As you may already know, The New York Times and The New Yorker both published exposé’s dishing on the thirty years of alleged misconduct against the Weinstein executive. Many women have come forward including Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, and Asia Argento among others.
