Los Angeles authorities could seek criminal charges against Harvey Weinstein.
On Tuesday, Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer asked any women who believes they were sexually assaulted by Weinstein to come forward and speak to police in the wake of multiple allegations of sexual harassment and assault made against the Hollywood producer.
“The Weinstein allegations have placed a bright spotlight on sexual harassment and sexual abuse, especially in the workplace,” Feuer said in a statement. “As brave victims come forward, others have been encouraged to do the same. And our nation must now confront these significant issues in a profound way.”
Feuer pointed out that the allegations were “not just a Hollywood thing — it’s a workplace thing, arising all too often in virtually every industry.”[contentcards url=”http://people.com/movies/la-city-attorney-seeking-to-prosecute-harvey-weinstein/” target=”_blank”]
