The legal ordeal for former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein had another layer added to it after he was slapped with three additional charges. Earlier today (July 2), a grand jury charged Weinstein with charges that could carry from 10 years to life in prison.

TMZ reports:

Manhattan D.A., Cyrus Vance Jr., announced Monday a grand jury has charged Weinstein with a first degree criminal sexual act and 2 counts of predatory sexual assault.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the alleged incident happened on July 10, 2006, and Weinstein allegedly forced oral sex on the woman.

All of the new counts are felonies and carry a minimum sentence of 10 years, and a max of life in prison.

The D.A. did not reveal the alleged victim’s name — but the incident sounds very much like the one a woman named Mimi described during a news conference last year … with her attorney, Gloria Allred.

Weinstein is also in court battling accusations of assault from 2004 and 2013.
