More than 70 women have accused the once-powerful film producer of sexual impropriety, including rape, since October 2017.

The criminal sex act charge against Weinstein stems from an encounter with Lucia Evans, who told The New Yorker and then investigators from the Manhattan district attorney's office that Hollywood producer forced her to perform oral sex on him during what she thought would be a casting meeting. Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday about the news that Weinstein might soon face charges, actress Rose McGowan, who publicly accused Weinstein of sexual assault in the Times report that opened the floodgates, released a statement.

Under a previously agreed bail package, Weinstein's travel will be restricted to NY and the neighbouring state of CT, and he agreed to surrender his passport.

McGowan told the AP on Thursday that "the justice system has been something very elusive". His attorney told reporters outside court that Weinstein meant to plead not guilty to all four charges announced Friday.

Hours after it was announced that Weinstein will be surrendering to authorities in NY on Friday following a months-long investigation, the Charmed star took to Instagram to share her feelings.

"BOOM", tweeted Italian actress Asia Argento, who has accused Weinstein of raping her at the Cannes film festival in 1997 when she was 21. Several actresses and models accused him of criminal sexual assaults, but numerous encounters happened too long ago for any prosecution.

The victim in the rape case has not been identified.
