Harvey Weinstein charged in Los Angeles with sexual assault of two women in 2013: prosecutor

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Harvey Weinstein was charged on Monday with raping one woman and sexually assaulting another in 2013, Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement.

“We believe evidence will show that defendant used his power and influence to gain access to his victims and then commit violent crimes against them,” Lacey said.
