What Books Did Harvey Weinstein Carry on His Perp Walk?

Disgraced Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is expected to surrender to the police in NY on Friday on charges of raping a woman, USA law enforcement officials said. So they did something nice for him. "But I have a visceral need for him to have handcuffs on him".

Weinstein has denied any wrongdoing, and his lawyer indicated Friday that the movie mogul is pleading not guilty to the charges.

Some stars who have shared their stories include Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek, Kate Beckinsale, Uma Thurman and Asia Argento. "We believe that at the end of the process Mr Weinstein will be exonerated".

The disgraced mogul turned himself in to authorities Friday morning, where he was arrested and formally charged with first and third-degree rape, as well as a criminal sex act in the first degree.

New York City police have also been investigating allegations by Boardwalk Empire actress Paz de la Huerta, who told police last fall that Weinstein raped her twice in 2010. A court complaint says Weinstein raped her in a Manhattan hotel in 2013. There, a judge set bail at $1 million cash or $10 million bond and assigned Weinstein to wear a monitoring device that he must pay for himself. Some women's groups, including the Hollywood activist group Time's Up, accused the Democrat of being too deferential to Weinstein and too dismissive of his accusers.

In a statement, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance said, "Today's charges reflect significant progress in this active, ongoing investigation", said District Attorney Vance.

In its statement, the New York Police Department thanked "these courageous survivors for their courage to come forward and seek justice".

He is also under investigation by several other police departments in Los Angeles and Europe.

"I want to make a prediction: Harvey Weinstein will never be welcomed here ever again", she said while flanked by fellow presenter Ava DuVernay. Argento and McGowan accused Harvey Weinstein of rape previous year and have been at the forefront of the crusade for justice against him.

Other celebrities are joining them in hoping for justice.

Weinstein handed off the books at the police station, where he was booked quickly.

About 90 minutes later, Weinstein was led by officers into court in handcuffs, grimacing, with his head bowed and his books nowhere in sight.

Actress Ashley Judd is suing the Hollywood producer, claiming he damaged her career after she rejected his sexual advances. Handcuffed and silent, he ignored a a lineup of reporters snapping photos and shouting questions.

Weinstein was taken to the courtroom about a half mile away for arraignment.

Weinstein exited through the back.

Brafman could soon be seen carrying Weinstein's passport, which he would later hand over to Illuzzi in court.

The charges follow a months-long investigation that involved the Manhattan district attorney's office.

'Harvey Weinstein has just been arrested. "That is super cathartic for a bunch of the survivors, or even survivors who are not necessarily victimized by him".

The rape charge relates to a woman who has not spoken publicly or been identified, according to the official, who wasn't authorized to discuss the case and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Today's charges are the first Weinstein has faced since he was forced to resign from his film company a year ago following reports in the New Yorker and New York Times showing a disturbing pattern of behavior.
