Harvey Weinstein arrested on rape charges in New York

Harvey Weinstein arrested on rape charges in New York

New York, 25 May 2018 (MIA) – Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to New York City detectives and was arrested on Friday on charges that he raped one woman and forced another to perform oral sex, a watershed in a months-long sex crimes investigation and the #MeToo movement, the New York Times reports.

He was expected to be arraigned on charges of first-degree rape and third-degree rape in one case, and first-degree criminal sex act in another, law enforcement officials said.

The charges follow a wave of accusations against him that led women around the world, some of them famous and many of them not, to come forward with accounts of being sexually harassed and assaulted by powerful men.

Those stories spawned the global #MeToo movement, and since then, the ground has shifted beneath men who for years benefited from a code of silence around their predatory behavior. mr/16:47
