Updated On 31 May, 2018 Published On

The Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was indicted on charges of rape and criminal sexual act by a New York City Grand Jury on Wednesday, May 30

Just a couple of hours after Harvey's lawyer announced that the producer wouldn't testify before a grand jury, he was charged with two different sets of sexual charges. 

The Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said in an interview, 

A Grand Jury has voted to indict Harvey Weinstein on charges of Rape in the First and Third Degres, and Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree. 

If the producer is deemed guilty, he will be put behind the bars for around 25 years

On Friday, May 25, Harvey perp-walked to the NYPD after surrendering himself to the NYPD. After that, he was arrested for two counts of rape, one of which included force as well as a sexual misconduct in the first degree. 

One of those misconducts occurred in 2004 and the other one in 2013

Vance stated in his statement that this charge against him takes another step closer for all of the crimes he is accountable for. He also stated that this office would try this case not in the press but in the courtroom. This remark was directed at Harvey's lawyer. 

While talking about the indictment, Benjamin Brafman, said in his announcement that this charge didn't mean he was guilty.

This indictment is merely a formal accusation. 

Harvey, who was accused by Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Katherine Kendall, and Gwyneth Paltrow, among others,  paid around $1 million bails to not be in the jail and also surrendered his passport to the official departs. 

Weinstein will have the next hearing on the 30th of July
