Harvey Weinstein was charged on Friday with a third sexual assault case in a case being put up by Los Angeles prosecutors against the ex-Hollywood mogul. “We continue to build and strengthen our file”, said Los Angeles Attorney Jackie Lacey.

Fallen producer, already imprisoned in New York State after being convicted of sexual assault and rape, must answer three charges of sexual assault in California courts, the office of the attorney for Los Angeles.

Twenty-nine years in prison

Harvey Weinstein is accused of having sexually assaulted a woman who remained anonymous in Beverly Hills in May 2010. This new charge of sexual assault, released on Friday, is in addition to two charges announced in January. He was previously charged with breaking into a woman’s hotel room to rape her on February 18, 2013, and then assaulting another woman the next day in a Beverly Hills hotel room. Harvey Weinstein denies the facts and assures that all these relationships were agreed.

“If we find new evidence of crimes that were not known, as was the case here, we will investigate and determine if further charges are necessary”, added Jackie Lacey.

It is not known when the trial will start, but the prosecutor’s office confirmed on Friday that it had launched a transfer request for Harvey Weinstein. “Upon arrival, he will be charged (…) Once the trial date has been set, the public will be informed”, indicates the press release. In this case, Harvey Weinstein faces up to 29 years in prison. Nearly 90 women have, to date, publicly accused Harvey Weinstein of harassment, sexual assault or rape. Most of the alleged facts are time-barred.
