Manhattan’s district attorney on Thursday dropped one of six criminal charges against Harvey Weinstein — after prosecutors found a written account by Lucia Evans of her encounter with the movie mogul that suggests it was consensual.
During a hearing in Manhattan Supreme Court, Justice James Burke granted the defense request to dismiss the count related to allegations by Evans.
The article goes on to state the following:
In an expose published in The New Yorker a year ago, Evans accused Weinstein of forcing her to perform oral sex on him when they met in his Tribeca office in 2004 to discuss her fledgling acting career when she was a 21-year-old college student.
She is one of three women whose allegations of sexual assault are being prosecuted by Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office.
