Harvey Weinstein Indicted On Multiple Rape Charges

Harvey Weinstein has been indicted on multiple rape charges.

Shortly after Weinstein said he would not be testifying before a Manhattan grand jury, he was indicted on first and third-degree rape charges and a criminal sex-act charge (according to Complex).

My statement about this momentous day. Look for my upcoming OpEd in @time. "That Harvey Weinstein, a powerful man who thrived and flourished as he shattered and abused women in a culture of impunity was arrested and charged is resoundingly significant. It is a watershed event, an irreversible pivot away from tacit and explicit license to exploit to a ground of firmer boundaries and clarity about unacceptable behavior no longer being tolerated. These images of Harvey in handcuffs are possible because of the voices, backbone, determination demonstrated by survivors, and the journalists who reported our stories, in spite of the unknown and retaliation." #harveyweinstein #metoo @timesupnow

According to Reuters, he could be facing up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

The charges Weinstein are being indicted for took place in 2004 and in 2013, but the victims have not been identified as of yet.

Weinstein has continued to deny all reports and claims he is innocent.

Even is Weinstein somehow get out of this, he still has nearly a dozen other lawsuits filed against him.

Is this the end for Harvey Weinstein?
