Harvey Weinstein Expected To Turn Himself In To NYPD On Sex Crime Charges

Disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein is planning to turn himself in to police in New York to face sexual misconduct charges, according to reports.

The charges could come as early as Friday, CNN reported, citing a source familiar with the investigation.

According to the New York Daily News, the NYPD is set to charge Weinstein for allegedly forcing student actress Lucia Evans to perfom oral sex on him in 2004.

Weinstein’s New York-based lawyer, Benjamin Brafman declined to comment on the situation Thursday, CNN said.

Federal prosecutors in New York are also investigating Weinstein for alleged sex crimes that may involve crossing state lines, which would open him up to the federal charges, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Local police have been investigating the former Hollywood mogul in New York, Los Angeles and London.

After initial reports in The New York Times and The New Yorker about Weinstein’s

‘The Price of Duty’ Looks Like A Home Run For Oxygen’s True Crime Lineup

Oxygen does a whole bunch of true crime programming, especially since NBC invested “nearly $450 million” in the company. Some shows are solid; some are not. Some, however, have a lot of potential, and that’s the way I feel about one of their newest announcements: a true crime series, titled The Price of Duty.

The show is intriguing because it takes a look at how crimes effect the people doing them. That is, after all, what makes shows like True Detective and The Wire so compelling. Judging from the trailer, The Price of Duty looks to be one of their most cerebral shows to date. After all, two of the executive producers, Eli Holzman, and Aaron Saidman are true heavyweights in this business and were responsible for one of the best crime documentaries ever, The Seven Five. The duo frequently collaborates together and have had several shows nominated for Primetime Emmy

Casey Anthony: Breaking Down Her Statements To Police | Crime …

During episode 2 of Oxygen’s limited series “The Case of: Caylee Anthony,” forensic linguist James Fitzgerald analyzed video footage of Casey Anthony following her arrest for the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Casey was acquitted on charges of both first-degree murder and manslaughter.

Along with former FBI supervisory special agent Jim Clemente and former New Scotland Yard criminal behavioral analyst Laura Richards, Fitzgerald examined Casey’s behavior to see how she reacted to the charges brought against her.

The surveillance video from the sheriff’s office captures Casey chatting with officers while she waits for her defense attorney Jose Baez to arrive to the station.

While discussing the case’s media exposure with Casey, FBI agent Scott Bolin tells her that without the media “we don’t find a quarter of the kids …”

“Oh, I agree, it helps,” Casey said. “The exposure has helped bring in so many tips for my daughter.”

Richards observed that though
