Harvey Weinstein Expected to Turn Himself In on Sexual Assault Charges: Report

Playing Harvey Weinstein to Surrender to Authorities on Sex Assault Charges: Report

Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein will turn himself in to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office Friday on sex crime charges, according to a published report.

Weinstein is expected to be charged with the alleged sexual assault of actress Lucia Evans, who has reportedly told police that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004 when she went to his office for a casting session.    

She is one of more than 30 women who have come forward with allegations against Weinstein, ranging from rude behavior to rape.

Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.

The allegations against the producer of such Oscar-winning films as "Shakespeare in Love," "The Artist" and "The King’s Speech" triggered the #MeToo movement last fall after reports surfaced of his alleged behavior. 

Following the allegations, his wife of 10 years, Georgina Chapman, announced she was leaving her husband. 

"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions," she told People magazine in a statement last October. "I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority."

Chapman recently spoke to Vogue where she admitted she was "humiliated" and "broken" by the allegations. 

"There was a part of me that was terribly naive — clearly, so naive," Chapman told Vogue magazine. "I have moments of rage, I have moments of disbelief!"  

Her fashion label, Marchesa, had been shunned on the red carpet, until Scarlett Johansson wore an off-the-shoulder gown from Chapman’s company at the Met Gala in New York City earlier this month.
