The Beverly Hills Police Department has submitted two potential
sex crime cases against Harvey Weinstein for review by the L.A. County
District Attorney’s office.
The D.A.’s office has yet to decide whether to bring charges.
No details of the allegations were immediately available.
“Two cases have been presented to our office by the Beverly
Hills Police Department regarding Mr. Weinstein and are under
review,” said D.A.’s spokesman Greg Risling.
The Beverly Hills department also declined to provide any
details of the cases.
“I can confirm there’s been two cases presented,” said Lt.
Elisabeth Albanese, the department’s spokeswoman. “We’re not
releasing any details about the cases until the D.A. has
reviewed it and made a conclusion on whether they’re filing
In addition, the Beverly Hills department also submitted five
potential cases against director James Toback. All seven cases
were submitted for review on Dec. 18, according to the D.A.’s
Weinstein has consistently denied any non-consensual sexual
contact. Many of the women who have come forward with
accusations have alleged that the misconduct occurred at the
Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. Among them is Dominique
Huett, a model and actress who sued Weinstein for
allegedly forcibly performing oral sex on her and then
masturbating in front of her at the hotel in 2010.
Toback has also denied allegations against him.
The L.A. District Attorney’s office has established a task
force to review sexual assault allegations arising from the
Weinstein scandal, though to date no one has been charged.
Weinstein is also under investigation for alleged assaults in
Los Angeles, New York and London. So far, the Los Angeles
Police Department has not submitted any investigations to the
D.A.’s office for review.
Correction: The D.A.’s office originally stated that three sex
cases had been submitted against Toback, but later updated the
figure to five.
