New York City Officials have announced they are prepared to arrest Billionaire mogul Harvey Weinstein.
The New York Police Department is ready to arrest former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, two NYPD officials told The Wall Street Journal, as federal prosecutors have opened a probe into some of the sexual assault allegations against him.
The NYPD is reportedly just waiting for approval from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., whose office has been criticized for not previously charging Weinstein after allegations were brought against him in 2015.
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan began a criminal investigation into the multiple sexual abuse allegations against Weinstein amid heightened tensions between police and the Manhattan district attorney's office, sources told the Journal.
The U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York is probing whether Weinstein got women to cross state lines for the purpose of committing a sex crime, an offense that could lead to federal charges.
Well that took an awfully long time didn’t it. But does anyone really believe Harvey Weinstein will actually return to the U.S to face charges? Please share and comment with your thoughts.
