       LAPD sends 3 Weinstein cases to prosecutors

While Weinstein has not yet been charged with any crimes, he's being investigated for sexual abuse in California, New York, and London.

The police in Los Angeles have submitted three sexual assault cases against the disgraced producer to prosecutors, the District Attorney's Office said on Thursday.

The district attorney's office is already reviewing two other cases against Weinstein that could also result in charges.

It's unclear at this time if that stipulation will apply as Weinstein is accused of alleged sexual misconduct and assault throughout many years of his career as a movie-making tycoon.

The veteran producer, who is reportedly in treatment for sexual addiction as he faces parallel investigations by the police in NY and London, has repeatedly denied having non-consensual sex.

Kim Yong-nam is the head of the parliament in the North and will be the highest-level official to visit South Korea in four years. He suggested that the recent communication between North and South Korea was a positive development.

With the case handed over by the LAPD on February 1, there is no timeline on when that review will be completed or what outcomes it may have besides prosecution.

His representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said last November she had created a special task force to evaluate cases of "sexual abuse in the entertainment industry".

The cases involve three different women accusing Weinstein of sex crimes. The LAPD also said it was investigating an allegation that Weinstein committed "lewd acts" in 2015. That led the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the group behind the Oscar awards, to expel Weinstein. Make a donation and help pay for our journalism.
