Could Harvey Weinstein go to jail?


Harvey Weinstein could face five to 25 years in prison on sexual assault charges if the latest abuse allegations are tried in criminal court, legal experts said.

The embattled Hollywood producer – who has been accused of sexual harassment and rape by women across the globe over the last week – could be charged in New York state for a 2004 assault allegation detailed in a New Yorker investigation published Tuesday.

Legal experts and law enforcement sources said that the claims described by Lucia Evans, a former aspiring actor, rise to the level of a felony charge under New York laws. However, because a criminal conviction could be difficult to achieve, prosecutors may be reluctant to bring a case in the first place.
