Harvey Weinstein might be facing prison time if found guilty of paying off victims of his sexual misconduct. This is coming after officials investigating his case found out that he has been paying women off for years.
Manhattan district attorney is currently investigating the money Weinstein has paid to settle his sexual misconduct court cases.
Ben Brafman, Weinstein’s attorney told New York Post, , “Any financial settlements by Mr. Weinstein were fully vetted and approved by legal counsel for Mr. Weinstein and The Weinstein Company. There was never any intent by Mr. Weinstein to violate the law and as a result, we do not believe that any criminal charges will be filed once all of the facts are carefully reviewed.”
More than 20 grand jury subpoenas has been given out to employees at The Weinstein Company and they are being interviewed for the financial investigation in addition to the rape accusations.
