Author |Nov 01, 2018

The disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has been faced with a new lawsuit for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl dated back a decade.

An anonymous woman has filed a claim alleging that Weinstein attacked her at his New York City apartment in 2002. This sexual harassment lasted no less than 10 years from 2002 to 2012. At that time, she was just 16 years old and on the way is an aspiring model in New York.

This girl is identified as Jane Doe, a former Polish model. She claimed that the movie mogul invited her to lunch to discuss her career, however, it ended up in his private apartment. He lured her to pull off her clothes and touch his genitals and demanded sex.

According to the filing, Weinstein even didn’t waste a minute to threaten aggressively and demand for sex.

He intimidated the little girl by saying that if she wanted to become an actress, she had no choice but to make love with him and satisfy him.

When the terrified teen refused his advance and asked him to let her leave, he became angry and threaten to destroy her career. At that time Jane Doe was a maiden and was not aware of the risk when accepting his invitation to have a business lunch.

By contrast, Benjamin Brafman, Weinstein's lawyer, called the accusations "preposterous." Weinstein renounces all allegations of nonconsensual sex.

The allegation serves as a fresh one in a class action lawsuit filed against Weinstein.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct including rape, assault, and harassment by more than 10 women. They all claimed that Weinstein seduced them into hotels and auditions and demanded sex in contemplation of promising roles.

Elizabeth Fegan, the lawyer of Jane Doe praised her for her brave decisions to speak out the truth.

After the attack, Harvey Weinstein continued to pursue and text her to offer acting roles in exchange for sex.

Weinstein became more avaricious and criticized her severely for rebuffing his advances. He even appeared at her placer and tried to enter her room; however, he was refused by safeguards.

Weinstein's filing shows that his studio knew Weinstein was a sexual predator but they chose to turn a blind eye to allow him to do criminal wrongdoing. Investigations into misconduct are ongoing in Los Angeles and London.
