Harvey Weinstein has been indicted on three additional felony sex charges, two of them carry the possibility of life sentences. On Monday, the Manahattan D.A.’s office announced that Weinstein faces three additional charges for an incident that took place in 2006 with a third woman. Per the indictment, he is accused of forcibly performing oral sex on the woman on July 10, 2006. He’s facing one count of criminal sexual act in the first degree, and two counts of predatory sexual assault.

 

The two latter felonies, according to Variety, apply to people who have been prosecuted on multiple sexual assault charges, like Weinstein. These charges are the most severe of those he's faced so far, and as Class A-II felonies they could lead to a potential sentence of 10 years to life in prison. He is currently free on $1 million bail and also  facing a class action lawsuit from three women with allegations ranging from sexual misconduct and assault to rape. No trial date has been set as of yet.
