Harvey Weinstein May Not Be Prosecuted In The Paz De La Huerta Case
Harvey Weinstein is responsible for 'The Weinstein Effect' that is taking over headlines and Hollywood. Since September, a wave of accusations against some of Hollywood's elite men implicating them as sexual predators with their actions being spread across the internet for everyone to see.
Weinstein's accusations are probably the most horrendous. If the allegations are true, Weinstein has used his power to manipulate and demean women for decades and is now paying the price for it.
Weinstein is currently being investigated for allegedly raping actress Paz De La Huerta on two separate occasions. De La Heurta claims that Weinstein raped her in 2010, once after showing up at her apartment and then another time after showing at her hotel lobby and following her to her home. De La Huerta came forward with her allegations to the New York City Police.
While it looked like Weinstein could be facing some serious prison time, new reports suggest that might not be case after all.
The Weinstein Effect
Because the case against the Hollywood mogul is more than seven years, this may be problematic for the prosecutors looking to bring Weinstein to justice. Also, the actress was in contact with Weinstein in between the times of the two alleged attacks.
Huerta's therapist also wrote a report to authorities that doesn't cooperate with what the Boardwalk Empire star claims happened.
"I recall you reporting to me a sexual encounter with Harvey Weinstein involving intercourse in your apartment in 2010 that resulted in you feeling victimized. I recall you telling me that it felt coercive to you and that you didn't want to have sex with him, but felt that you had to as he was a man of power and rank and you couldn't say no to his sexual advances," her therapist wrote.
Weinstein has denied De La Huerta's allegations.
Other actresses who have claimed that Weinstein raped or assaulted them include: Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, and Heather Graham.
Even though Weinstein may not arrested for this case, he's not completely out of the dark yet. The producer's wife left him amid allegations and Weinstein is still being investigating by the LAPD and London police.
