Gender Letter: Harvey Weinstein ‘Perp Walked’ Into the Future of #MeToo

They did not identify the women.

His bail was set at $1 million cash (or $10 million bond; a check for $1 million is apparently being deposited this morning), with a 24/7 monitoring device paid for by him.

In the eight months since, scores of women have made sexual harassment and assault allegations against the movie mogul.

In a statement, District Attorney Cy Vance said the charges stem from incidents involving two women in 2013 and 2004, respectively. Furthermore, his lawyer says his client intends to plead not guilty. "I thank the courageous survivors who have come forward, and my office's prosecutors who have worked tirelessly on this investigation".

The New York police said in its statement: "The NYPD thanks these fearless survivors for their courage to come forward and seek justice". His attorney told reporters outside court that Weinstein meant to plead not guilty to all four charges announced Friday.

In another tweet, she shared a BBC clip of Weinstein walking into the police station and wrote, "What took you so long Harvey?"

'Today we are one step closer to justice.

Brafman said he didn't think a jury would believe Weinstein's accusers - if potential jurors are "not consumed by the movement that seems to have consumed this case". "Those are the desperate excuses of somebody who thought he'd never get caught".

Mr Weinstein, 66, also agreed to wear a Global Positioning System tracker and to surrender his passport after turning himself in to police on Friday. As he left his vehicle and entered a throng of flashing camera lights, the former movie mogul clutched three books under his arm, like a shield.

It was not immediately clear why he had those books. Kazan, the director shunned by Hollywood after supplying names to the House Un-American Activities Committee, saw himself as an unfairly persecuted artist, and Weinstein's message in carrying a book about him was parsed by court observers.

The former film producer wore a dark suit and was surrounded by attorneys when he arrived at the police station Friday morning before a crowd of onlookers. As he was handcuffed and transported to court, she followed up with, "Harvey Weinstein ain't smiling now".

The concept, codename Project P, was created by a team of engineers at Honda's United Kingdom manufacturing facility in Swindon. The car's design looks like an origami experiment that got out of hand, but for some reason there is a charm to it.

YouTube Music arrives late to the party with room for improvement
What will happen to Google Play Music? There is no word when will Google pull the plug on Play Music service. It now has a total of 44 destinations that can be tracked including the United Kingdom and the US.

Lucia Evans told The New Yorker in a story published in October that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex during a daytime meeting at his New York office in 2004, the summer before her senior year at Middlebury College.

The Weinstein Co. library includes more than 250 films.

Harvey Weinstein was arrested Friday on charges of rape and sex abuse.

"I said, over and over, 'I don't want to do this, stop, don't, ' " she told the publication, adding that in the end, "He's a big guy".

Weinstein already faces a slew of civil lawsuits, is reportedly under federal investigation, and his former studio has filed for bankruptcy.

"You sorry, Harvey?" came a shout from a throng of media as the once powerful movie mogul walked into a lower Manhattan courthouse, his head bowed with the cuffs behind his back. McGowan was one of Weinstein's earliest accusers.

Just last week, actress Asia Aregento spoke about what she says was her experience with Weinstein at the Cannes Film Festival. "If it's being done to me and other people who are well-known, what's happening to those who aren't?" she said.

"A year ago he was still king of the castle".

Numerous men in entertainment accused of misconduct have been stripped of their power - losing their companies, as in Weinstein's case, or being written out of reruns and future Hollywood deals, in actors' cases.

"We were not allowed to speak to anybody obviously, friends, family, press, public, private, about the alleged behavior, but also about our time at Miramax", Perkins said.
