Horrific Hollywood mogul-turned-monster Harvey Weinstein was scooped from his New York penitentiary under the cover of darkness to journey to Los Angeles and stand trial for additional sex crimes, Your Content is first to report.

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced today that former film producer Harvey Weinstein has been indicted on charges that he sexually assaulted five women in separate incidents that span nearly a decade.

“Anyone who abuses their power and influence to prey upon others will be brought to justice,” District Attorney Gascón said.

Weinstein made his initial court appearance today after being extradited from New York. He pleaded not guilty to four counts each of forcible rape and forcible oral copulation, two counts of sexual battery by restraint and one count of sexual penetration by use of force. The indictment was unsealed today.

He is scheduled to return to court on July 29 for a motions hearing in Department 110 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center.
