The accusations, first reported previous year by the New York Times and the New Yorker, gave rise to the #MeToo movement, in which hundreds of women have publicly accused powerful men in business, government and entertainment of sexual misconduct.
Film producer Harvey Weinstein on Friday surrendered to authorities at a New York City police station on sex crime charges, months after he was toppled from Hollywood's most powerful ranks by scores of women accusing him of misconduct.
As part of a bail package negotiated in advance, he will put up $1 million in cash and will agree to wear a monitoring device.
Weinstein has repeatedly denied any instance of nonconsensual sex, though this is the first time formal charges have been handed down. He carried thick books under his right arm, including what appeared to be biographies of the Broadway musical duo of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, and Elia Kazan, the director of such classic Hollywood films as "On the Waterfront" and "A Streetcar Named Desire".
After having his mugshots and fingerprints taken, he was escorted out in handcuffs and driven to court in the back of a smart SUV. Weinstein surrendered his USA passport and agreed to wear a monitoring device that tracks his location, confining him to the states of NY and CT. Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, whose case against Strauss-Kahn fell apart, has been heavily criticized for failing to bring a criminal case against Weinstein for allegedly groping and harassing Italian model Ambra Battilana. The case has been adjourned until July 30.

"We got you, Harvey Weinstein, we got you".
NY police previously confirmed another credible rape allegation after "Boardwalk Empire" actress Paz de la Huerta accused the former producer of raping her twice at her NY apartment in late 2010.
Weinstein turned himself in to the police early Friday morning following dozens of sexual assault allegations. This led to many allegations against high-profile members of in the entertainment business (Morgan Freeman being the latest, accused of sexual harassment), but it also had an impact on the news business, with accusations against former industry titans like Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose. More than 90 women have since come forward with additional allegations.
Other actresses who have publicly accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct include Uma Thurman and Salma Hayek.

"He forced me to perform oral sex on him", she said. A few, including Asia Argento and Rose McGowan, said they were raped. "I have to admit I didn't think I would see the day that he would have handcuffs on him".
Weinstein refuted her claims.
McGowan further said she doesn't "ever want to see him again" and that she doesn't want to forgive him. His fashion designer wife, Georgina Chapman, has left him.
Sexual assault cases, particularly those that allegedly happened years ago, are notoriously hard to prosecute and often lack substantive forensic evidence.
One of Brafman's past clients, former International Monetary Fund boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn, ultimately escaped criminal prosecution for alleged sexual assault in 2011.
