While new revelations continue to surface to this day, many are missing the literal price for his behavior. These victims need an experienced attorney who can help them to regain some of their own empowerment by holding Harvey Weinstein financially accountable for his actions and behavior. In addition to Harvey Weinstein personally, his company, Weinstein Co., also continues to face potentially huge financial ramifications for his actions.
My name is Rivers Morrell and I have been helping victims of these types of civil lawsuits including rape, sexual assault, gross sexual imposition, the transmission of STDs without warning and other related offenses. Proving them in a criminal court is one thing. Proving the case in a civil action and holding Harvey Weinstein financially accountable for his actions is absolutely possible, and in many cases likely. He has already settled many of these cases according to reports in the media.
The criminal statute of limitations for sexual misconduct and rape was removed altogether just recently. This applies to sex crimes which took place after January 1, 2017 and any time in the future. The removal also applies to alleged sexual offenses conducted prior to January 1, 2017 for which the prior statute of limitations had not expired.
