Harvey Weinstein hands himself in to police in NY

Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan ‘We got you Harvey Weinstein we got you

It was the moment the #MeToo movement had been waiting for: Harvey Weinstein in handcuffs.

Flinching when he heard himself described as a man who used power to prey on women, Harvey Weinstein was arraigned Friday on rape and other charges in the first criminal prosecution to result from the wave of allegations against him that sparked a national reckoning over sexual misconduct. His past clients include former International Monetary Fund boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who escaped criminal prosecution for alleged sexual assault in 2011.

The rape charges involve a woman who has not come forward publicly.

Evans told The New Yorker that Weinstein approached her in a club in 2004 and forced her to perform oral sex in a Tribeca office.

Weinstein's lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, declined to comment, the report said. In 1952, Kazan caved to pressure from the House Un-American Activities Committee, a United States government group that investigated people with possible ties to Communism. Weinstein shook his head and softly said, "No".

Judge Kevin McGrath ordered Weinstein released on $US1 million ($1.3 million) cash bail. With a throng of cameras on hand, the once-powerhouse producer found himself at the center of a spectacle he didn't control. "Harvey Weinstein shattered the lives of an untold number of women".

The Kazan biography is particularly on-the-nose for the voracious reader. Later, in a courthouse booking area, he complained he felt faint and his handcuffs were too tight. But I'm angry at men like Harvey Weinstein, and there's nothing palatable about it. The most serious rape charge carries a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison. He must wear an ankle bracelet and can only travel within the NY or CT. I wish it were true, and you know, I think if we can get the rotten apples, get rid of them then great people can come up and flourish.

During the election, at least 15 women made allegations against Trump ranging from sexual harassment and sexual assault to lewd behavior around women.

They co-founded Miramax Films, a small distribution company named after his mother Miriam and father Max, in 1979.

But there were rumours in Hollywood for years about Weinstein's pursuit of young actresses.

"But I have a visceral need for him to have handcuffs on", she said.

Last fall, Evans went public with claims that Weinstein had sexually assaulted her in his office in 2004.

The Manhattan District Attorney's Office and police have been investigating Weinstein for months, coming under growing pressure from the Time's Up movement and Hollywood actresses to bring the disgraced producer to justice.

Time's Up, an organization born out of the Weinstein scandal that is dedicated to fighting inequality and injustice in the workplace, also posted a lengthy note online.

Weinstein, wearing a dark jacket over a blue sweater and white open-collared shirt and dark jeans, appeared pale, and stood next to Brafman, staring into the middle distance with his mouth ajar while prosecutors described a bail agreement.

Major figures in media and politics have lost their jobs or had their reputations tarnished by allegations that they subjected women to unwanted advances or outright assaults.
