A grand jury indicted Harvey Weinstein on Wednesday on two counts of rape and a single count of criminal sexual acts.
The charges match the ones filed in a criminal complaint last Friday by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.
“This indictment brings the defendant another step closer to accountability for the crimes of violence with which he is now charged,” D.A. Cyrus Vance, Jr., said in a statement. “Our office will try this case not in the press, but in the courtroom where it belongs. The defendant’s recent assault on the integrity of the survivors and the legal process is predictable. We are confident that when the jury hears the evidence, it will reject these attacks out of hand.”
Weinstein faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
