    Harvey Weinstein sexual assault case in danger of falling apart

    It will be unbelievable if this guy beats doing time


    The sexual assault case against Harvey Weinstein is in danger of crumbling after Manhattan prosecutors found an accuser’s written account of her encounter with the movie mogul that suggests it was consensual, multiple sources told The Post.

    Lucia Evans has accused Weinstein of forcing her to perform oral sex on him inside his Tribeca office in 2004, when she was a 21-year-old college student and aspiring actress. She is one of three women whose allegations of sexual assault are being prosecuted by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office.


    But a prior employer of Evans turned over the personal writings she’d left on the company computer, which appear to contradict her grand jury testimony, a law enforcement source said.


    “The writings indicate it was consensual, friendly,” a source told The Post. “It has caused a split [in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office], some believe the charges should be dropped and that there’s a problem [with this complainant].”


    Manhattan prosecutors ultimately decided not to drop Evans from the case despite some internal opposition.



    The latest revelation comes after another damaging report, that the NYPD’s lead investigator on the case failed to turn over statements from a casting director who said Evans told him she had performed the sex act to score an acting gig.

    Another source said, “The casting witness is a problem, but that is still ‘he said, she said.’ It’s harder to explain away her own words.”

    That is just one accuser. The DA should drop this one so it doesn't taint the others.

    I had called this and like it was difficult. I have written for quite some time that the more facts come out about this case, the worse it will get for the prosecution as they find not all of the 'victims' are little angels.

    There has to be some evidence that he did what he says. When the story turns out false there isn't any point in going forward. Innocent unless proven guilty is still the way it's done.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
