Harvey Weinstein is facing a new sexual battery charge, according to TMZ.
Weinstein has been hit with a new count stemming from an incident that allegedly occurred at a Beverly Hills hotel back in May of 2010.
Law enforcement says the alleged victim provided detectives with information in March 2020 confirming the incident didn’t fall outside the 10-year-statute of limitation.
Back in January, Weinstein was charged with one felony count each of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by use of force and sexual battery by restraint.
If convicted, Weinstein faces up to 29 years in prison.
Prosecutors have started the process of temporarily transferring Weinstein — who is currently serving a 23-year sentence in New York — to Los Angeles to answer to the charges.
Prosecutors in L.A. also announced today that two cases involving Weinstein were dropped because the victims did not want to testify against the defendant in this case.
Weinstein tested positive for coronavirus last month but has since made a full recovery.
