H4 weinstein in custody Rose McGowan, More Celebs React to Harvey Weinstein's Arrest

Weinstein was released on $1-million bail, with constant electronic monitoring and a ban on travelling beyond NY and CT. He appeared pale, standing next to his lawyer Ben Brafman, while prosecutors described a bail arrangement.

NY police have previously confirmed an active Weinstein investigation regarding Evans, who was an aspiring actress at the time, and a 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.

She was among the first women to speak out about the producer and has confirmed to The New Yorker to be pressing charges.

There are open criminal investigations into Weinstein's conduct in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London, and reports of probable coordination at some level between detectives.

NY police say charges relate to allegations made by two women in an sex abuse probe involving the movie producer. The D.A.'s office has said that it will continue to investigate other allegations.

"Today's charges reflect significant progress in this active, ongoing investigation", Vance said in a statement after the arraignment.

The charges followed a months-long investigation that involved the Manhattan district attorney's office. The rape charge stems from an allegation by a woman who has not been publicly identified.

One of the women, Lucia Evans, told the New Yorker in October, that Weinstein sexually assaulted her in his office in 2004.

Out on bail, Weinstein's travel will be restricted to NY and the neighbouring state of CT.

"I still have very guarded hopes", McGowan said.

"In 1997, I was raped by Harvey Weinstein here at Cannes", she said. "But I have a visceral need for him to have handcuffs on him".

Major figures in media and politics have lost their jobs or had their reputations tarnished by allegations that they subjected women to unwanted advances or outright assaults.

The Manhattan district attorney's office and NY police have investigated Weinstein for months, coming under growing pressure from the Time's Up movement to bring the disgraced producer to justice.

It is the first time he has faced criminal charges since the allegations first emerged and sparked the MeToo and Time's Up movements. The firm hired Italian private investigators who said that Gutierrez had engaged in prostitution - an accusation Gutierrez denied - and K2 employees shared this information with prosecutors.

The district attorney and police have been investigating Weinstein for months, under growing calls from the Time's Up movement and Hollywood actresses to bring the disgraced producer to justice.

As he exited the courtroom, however, he seemed to spring to life, even backslapping a man in the gallery who stood up to talk to him, saying "hey" to the person as they walked out together. "We were just people". Argento and McGowan accused Harvey Weinstein of rape a year ago and have been at the forefront of the crusade for justice against him.

"There'd be times when you'd be kicked out of the suite at the Savoy or the Peninsula Hotel in L.A., and he would entertain", he said.

"To see it actually happen, I think is a big deal".

Weinstein refuted her claims.

Who else has accused Mr Weinstein?

This wasn't us saying that we weren't gonna, you know, give away corporate secrets.

Harvey Weinstein's choice of reading material for his surrender to NY authorities on Friday drew attention to a pair of entertainment biographies.

His case was adjourned until July 30.
