Police investigate 'credible' rape claim against Weinstein

Actress Paz De La Huerta Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Her Twice

Manhattan district attorney's spokeswoman Joan Vollero says a senior sex crimes prosecutor has been assigned to the investigation, which is being conducted along with NY police. De la Huerta said she told two people about the incident before now, including her therapist and a journalist, and both of them have provided statements corroborating the actresses's account of the night, as per her description of it to them. Weinstein insisted they have drinks, she said, and they would up in her apartment.

"He pushed me on the bed and it happened all very suddenly", de la Huerta told CBS.

The Boardwalk Empire made the revelations in an interview with Vanity Fair. "I did say no, and when he was on top of me I said, 'I don't want to do this, '" the actress said.

The world-famous movie producer has come under fire, with dozens of women accusing him of sexually harassing or attacking them.

He followed her up to her apartment where he raped her a second time, according to BBC News.

The judge said Weinstein could be deposed, even though his attorney said a deposition would be "tricky" and "fraught with problems", given ongoing criminal investigations into multiple allegations of rape and sexual assault against him.

"We have an actual case here", Boyce said. De la Huerta and her attorney have since been working with detectives from the NYPD's special victim's unit and the district attorney's office, she said.

It is at least the third Weinstein case that police in NY have examined.

Writers Megan Twohey and William K. Rashbaum wrote that they learned from three people versed on the matter (who wished to remain anonymous) that "the office of the United States attorney for the Southern District of NY is examining whether fraud occurred when the money went to a theater that had staged a musical produced by Mr. Weinstein".

Police in Los Angeles and London are also investigating rape allegations against Weinstein.

"I was in no state", she said. Weinstein has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone.
