Harvey Weinstein could face lifelong jail sentence

Harvey Weinstein could face life in prison for the latest sexual misconduct charges that have been brought against him.

The producer faces three additional sexual assault charges on top of the previous charges brought against him in May for rape and other sex crimes, which he has pleaded not guilty to and is currently out on bail for.

If Weinstein is found guilty again this time his jail time could become a lifelong sentence.

Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. says a grand jury voted to charge Weinstein for alleged incidents involving three women in 2006.

One count is for committing a criminal sexual act in the first degree, while the other two are for predatory sexual assault.

The last charge carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.

Vance says the investigation is still ongoing and that the charges filed are some of the most serious sexual offences that exist under New York law.

Weinstein's lawyers says he'll enter a plea of not guilty to the new charges.
