NBC New York just reported that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is looking to present a case next week to the grand jury in hopes of indicting Harvey Weinstein on a number of charges stemming from his alleged rapes of actress Paz de la Huerta in 2010.
Why can they prosecute this case, and not so many other accusations?
Simply, because De La Huerta assault claim is not bound by the statute of limitations, which the N.Y. courts did away with in 2006 for all instances of rape, criminal sexual assault or aggravated sexual abuse.
The actress accuses the disgraced movie mogul of rape on two occasions, though Weinstein continues to maintain his innocence.
Chief Boyce, who is in charge of the case said that De La Huerta is a strong witness, noting her ‘ability to articulate each and every movement of the crime, where she was, where they met, where this happened and what he did.’
Let’s hope this scumbag sees some jail time.
