- Picture: Bang Showbiz Harvey Weinstein has surrendered to police in New York, where he will face sexual misconduct charges.

- The producer will be charged with first-degree rape and third-degree rape in one case, and with first-degree criminal sex act in another, according to law enforcement officials who spoke before Weinstein arrived in the city.

- The victim of the rape case has not been publicly identified, but the criminal sex act charge stems from an encounter with Lucia Evans, who alleged in October last year that Weinstein had once forced her to perform oral sex on him during a casting meeting at the Miramax office.

- Over 60 women - including Cara Delevingne, Eva Green, Daryl Hannah, Salma Hayek, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Beckinsale - have come forward to make allegations against Weinstein since the New York Times and New Yorker's exposes in October, which documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct.
