A New York district attorney has dropped part of the criminal case against Harvey Weinstein. The drop in charges was announced in court Thursday with Weinstein looking on. A judge agreed to dismiss allegations by Lucia Evans, one of three accusers in the case.
Evans told ‘The New Yorker” that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex during a meeting at his office in 2004. Weinstein’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said in court that he believes Evans lied to the grand jury about what happened.
Weinstein, who is also charged with raping a woman in 2013 and forcing an unwanted sex act on a woman in 2006, remains free on bail.
