Harvey Weinstein Arrested


Harvey Weinstein was finally arrested in New York Friday after surrendering to police. Weinstein's charges include first- and third-degree rape and a criminal sex act in the first degree. 

This comes almost seven months after the first allegations against the disgraced producer surfaced.

Weinstein faces up to 25 years in prison if he's convicted of the charges against him and has to wear a monitoring device that allows him to be tracked 24/7. He can only travel between New York and Connecticut unless he receives approval from the D.A.'s office and court to travel elsewhere.

According to Weinstein's attorney Ben Brafman, Weinstein defends his innocence.

"Mr. Weinstein has always maintained that he has never engaged in non-consensual sexual behavior with anyone. Nothing about today's proceedings changes Mr. Weinstein's position. He has entered a plea of not guilty and fully expects to be exonerated."

His feelings about the potential convictions were made clear when Weinstein was photographed smiling while being escorted out of the police station in handcuffs.
