Los Angeles prosecutors are reviewing three accusations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein, a step towards possible criminal charges for the movie producer, a spokesman for the county District Attorney's office said on Thursday.

Harvey Weinstein could be hauled to court soon.

Variety reported that the District Attorney's office is also looking into two other cases against Weinstein that were submitted by the Beverly Hills Police Department.

The Hill: House passes stopgap spending measure with defense money
Convening early this morning, the House voted 240-186 to approve the deal, following the Senate's 71-28 passage hours earlier. House Speaker Paul Ryan appeared to shrug off concerns that several Republicans might oppose the deal.

The following month, Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey said she had assigned some veteran sex crime prosecutors to a task force to look into allegations of sexual assault in Hollywood.

The three newer cases were referred to the DA on February 1, but an announcement wasn't made until a week later, the broadcaster reported. They have yet to provide any details about the accusers or the allegations in question.

The cases involve three different women accusing Weinstein of sex crimes.

She also condemned the recent Kabul attacks and offered Pakistan's assistance for a joint investigation. All three were tied to Aminullah, who was put on worldwide terror blacklists in 2009.

Weinstein, who has been accused by dozens of women of sexual misconduct or assault, is also being investigated by police in NY and London.

Weinstein, 65, has denied non-consensual sex with anyone and Reuters has not been able to independently confirm the allegations. The LAPD also said it was investigating an allegation that Weinstein committed "lewd acts" in 2015.

The Weinstein scandal, which first hit last October in a shocking New York Times exposé, was the catalyst for the #MeToo, and later the Time's Up, movement.

He said that's when two or three small explosions went off in the wreckage and people weren't sure what to do. He earlier told United States media that the local terrain had hampered rescue efforts overnight.

The movements have grown in scope to target high-profile figures as far-reaching as actors Kevin Spacey and Danny Masterson, as well as comedian Louis C.K., and filmmaker James Toback. Be sure to check back with CrimeOnline for updates as they become available.
