The criminal investigations into Harvey Weinstein He’s already lost in the court of public opinion. What’s next in the court of law?

the LAPD had 28 open sex crimes cases involving figures in media and the entertainment industry. In addition to those 28 cases, Deadline reported that 37 other sex crimes reports had been sent to other jurisdictions, and cold case units at the LAPD were involved in those investigations as well.

Deadline reported that the LAPD sent three sexual abuse cases against Harvey Weinstein to the District Attorney’s office. The DA’s office confirmed the three cases are “under review.” The DA received the cases on February 1. A law enforcement source told Deadline that the DA is “very confident these are solid and actionable cases.”

These cases, along with two from the Beverly Hills Police Department (also against Weinstein), are the first to be filed since the LAPD launched a special task force to investigate sex crimes in the entertainment industry. Announced last November as allegations against Weinstein, director James Toback, and Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick filled headlines, the task force consists of “veteran sex crimes prosecutors,” Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement, working in five two-person teams.

individuals with out-of-statute allegations can and should still report to the police, as those reports “could potentially bolster any current and forthcoming case as it creates a pattern of behavior.”
