Rose McGowan on Harvey Weinstein’s arrest: ‘We got you’

Film producer Harvey Weinstein stands with his lawyer Benjamin Brafman left inside Manhattan Criminal Court during his arraignment in Manhattan in New York

More than 70 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct although the charges relate to only two of them.

But Belloni said it was "notoriously difficult" to get a conviction in sexual assault cases, and it may depend on how many women will be allowed to tell their story in court.

Weinstein was there because he was charged with criminal offense after Lucia Evans told The New Yorker he had forced her to perform oral sex on him.

"Mr. Weinstein's criminal attorneys Blair Berk and Benjamin Brafman have said that a fair investigation of the allegations of criminal wrongdoing will prove they are without merit", a spokesperson for Weinstein told the Los Angeles Times of the Los Angeles investigation. The grand jury is still hearing evidence in his case Weinstein will be booked at the precinct and then taken to court, where he will be arraigned on a criminal complaint just after 9:00 a.m. ET.

Weinstein's attorney, Ben Brafman, released a statement to ET following the arraignment, which reads: "Mr. Weinstein has always maintained that he has never engaged in non-consensual sexual behavior with anyone".

They are aiming for a fourth successive National Basketball Association finals appearance, while Houston last made the finals in 1995.

But one photo that we won't see, at least not officially, is Weinstein's mugshot. "I thank the fearless survivors who have come forward, and my office's prosecutors who have worked tirelessly on this investigation".

His wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, left him soon after the allegations surfaced, with police criminal investigations ongoing in London, Los Angeles and NY.

It's been almost eight months since accusations of rape, sex assault and harassment first surfaced against the 66-year-old Weinstein.

Rose McGowan says she was raped by Harvey Weinstein in 1997. The movement has given women everywhere the power to speak up against sexual abuse and has been described as a major turning point in how accusations about sexual abuse and other misconduct is treated. The New York Times reported that the investigation will examine whether Weinstein violated federal stalking laws. "Had he been held accountable years ago, there would be fewer victims of his sex crimes", Harrison said.

Weinstein, 66, has consistently denied any allegations of nonconsensual sex.

In Wednesday morning's interview with The Washington Post , he said the president sometimes seesaws on whether he wants to do an interview.

Throughout, Weinstein was pale, sombre and cowed as the wheels of justice turned.

"When the woman in the courtroom said he needed to lure women in, there was a quick look of shock from him". "These women's lives have been changes forever as a result of what he did", Kelly said, and added that it's "offensive" when the conversation quickly shifts "to how hard it has been on the men" without even spending a minute on the women.

Some of the other women, including actresses who say they faced intimidation, reprisal and career consequences from the mogul, responded with both surprise and relief at his arrest.

The public allegations against Weinstein helped prompt a broad public reckoning about sexual misconduct.
