Will Weinstein face further criminal charges?

The accusations, first reported by the New York Times and the New Yorker a year ago, gave rise to the #MeToo movement in which hundreds of women have publicly accused powerful men in business, government and entertainment of misconduct.

Speaking in court, Joan Illuzzi-Orbon, a Manhattan assistant attorney, said Weinstein used " his position, money and power to lure young women into situations where he was able to violate them sexually".

New York City police have also been investigating allegations by Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta, who told police last fall that Weinstein raped her twice in 2010.

Weinstein surrendered to police earlier Friday morning, not saying anything as he stepped out from a black SUV in front of a crowd of reporters and cameras. That man also carried two books with him into the police station, biographies of Big Men in Show Biz - Elia Kazan, and Rodgers and Hammerstein - because he is, after all, exactly the kind of prick who fancies himself both a legend and a victim of a pious mob.

Weinstein ultimately turned himself in at the NYPD first precinct, closest to his former office above the Tribeca Grill restaurant, where he was a fixture.

In a statement, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance called the women who pressed charges "brave" and referred to the investigation into Weinstein's behavior "ongoing". We were sentenced to years of it before anybody believed us.

The other charge is related to an incident on March 18, 2013, where Weinstein allegedly kept a woman "physically against her will" at 569 Lexington Avenue and raped her, according to the Manhattan DA's office.

"I actually did not believe this day would come", she said on NBC's "Megyn Kelly Today" program. "I loved my life", she said.

Democrats demanded to receive the same briefing. "I think James Comey's got a lot of problems", Trump said Wednesday. Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was also included in the first meeting.

The man who beckoned young women to his hotel rooms for the sole goal of using them, who hired ex-Mossad agents to track anyone liable to expose him, who had vast resources at his fingertips and used them liberally to try to silence the dozens of women he (allegedly) victimized ― even that man is no longer untouchable. He will wear an electronic monitoring device at all times, and face other travel restrictions.

There are open criminal investigations into Weinstein's conduct in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London, and reports of probable coordination at some level between detectives. He did not enter a plea, which is common at this stage in a criminal case in NY. Add Harvey Weinstein as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Harvey Weinstein news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Rose McGowan was one of the first in Hollywood to go public with claims of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein, and helped start the Me Too movement that spread all over the world.

Cosby's conviction followed a mistrial previous year in his first trial on the same charges.

"If I'm allowed to, I will attend", McGowan told the AP.

It was unclear whether NY prosecutors would seek to have other Weinstein accusers testify against him.

Argento recently made headlines at the Cannes Film Festival last week when she condemned Weinstein ahead of an award presentation.

In its documentary Weinstein, FRONTLINE investigated the culture of silence and complicity that enabled Weinstein to continue a pattern of alleged harassment that spanned decades.
