OH, THE CAUCASITY OF IT ALL!!!!
Shock ripped through the entertainment industry, as many have mixed feelings about one of Harvey Weinstein’s counts in his criminal case being dismissed. A New York judge threw out count 6 (a charge of a criminal sexual act in the first degree) today, during the fallen movie execs criminal indictment.
According to CNN, an up and coming actress named Lucia Evans alleged that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in his Tribeca office in 2004. Evans went public with these allegations in the New Yorker magazine last year, right at the pop off of the #MeToo movement.
After the judge’s decision was rendered, Evans’ attorney Carrie Goldberg said that the prosecution had “jumped ship.” Without support, Evans was caught up in political gymnastics between the NYPD and DA’s office and this is presumed to have weakened her case.
