On Friday, May 25, 2018, one of the most successful movie executives, Harvey Weinstein, turned himself into NYPD's 1st Precinct station.

Two separate women accused Weinstein of rape, criminal sex acts, sex abuse, and sexual misconduct.

Manhattan assistant attorney, Joan Illuzzi-Orbon, told the judge that Weinstein used his power to lure young women to perform sexual acts, and in return, the women would have the potential to become a star, or move up Hollywood's ladder of fame.

Weinstein is expected to plead not guilty to all the charges.

Lucia Evans said Harvey raped her in 2004

The following story was first published by the New Yorker, thanks to Ronan Farrow. In 2004, Lucia Evans was called Lucia Stoller (we assume she has gotten married), and was in her last year at Middlebury College. One night, she decided to attend the Cipriani Upstairs club in New York. At the club, Weinstein was also there and approached her, asking for her number.

After numerous phone calls, Evans finally agreed to meet Weinstein at the Miramax office in Tribeca for a possible acting job. After being escorted into Weinstein's office, she realized that he was all alone and felt uncomfortable.

After some talk about potential acting jobs, Weinstein pulled out his private part and pulled Evans's head closer to it demanding she perform the act on him. She resisted at first, but out of sheer defeat, she gave in to his demands and did the act. This incident scared Evans so much that many of her friends assumed she would kill herself.

The tweet by Rose McGowan says it all:

Video shows the predator behavior of Weinstein

One of the most criminating pieces of evidence against Weinstein is the video recorded by Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, an aspiring model, and once a finalist in the Miss Italy contest.

In 2015, she met Weinstein at a get-together for a new show he was working on.

After the event, Weinstein contacted Gutierrez's modelling agency for a possible acting job. Once the meeting was arranged and Gutierrez met Weinstein at his office, she reports that after some petty talk, he groped her breasts. After this incident, Gutierrez went to the police and reported everything that happened.

Weinstein asked Gutierrez to come to a show but she declined. At the police station, agents told Gutierrez to meet with Weinstein but suggested she should be wired so that they could record the entire conversation. As predicted, Weinstein tried to lure her to his hotel room after the show.

The CBC noted that over 75 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

It is surprising that only two women have pressed charges. One reason for the few women pressing charges is the legal team of Weinstein has been successful at solving cases quick and fast because of the substantial amount of money that Weinstein has. A quick settlement involving millions of dollars will most likely be accepted.
