U.S. film producer Harvey Weinstein arrives to attend the presentation of the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2014 collection during London Fashion Week, London, Britain, February 17, 2014.

POLICE in Los Angeles have submitted three sexual assault cases against disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein to prosecutors, the District Attorney's Office said yesterday.

Weinstein's epic fall rocked the country as high-profile cases of sexual abuse scanning decades revealed Hollywood's code of silence surrounding harassment and abuses of power throughout the industry.

The district attorney for Los Angeles County says it has received the cases from the city's police department in recent days. He has apologised for his treatment of women but has denied allegations of non-consensual sex.

Variety reported that the District Attorney's office is also looking into two other cases against Weinstein that were submitted by the Beverly Hills Police Department.


His representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Since last October hundreds of women have accused powerful men in business, politics and entertainment of sex abuse, joining the #MeToo social media movement that has shone a light on sexual misconduct across the United States.

Weinstein is also facing criminal investigations in NY and London.

The cases involving Weinstein have been forwarded to that task force, Risling said in an email.

Actress Uma Thurman, linked to Weinstein's Miramax studio through her iconic roles in "Pulp Fiction" and "Kill Bill", became his latest accuser on Saturday, alleging that he tried to "shove himself" on her and expose himself.
