Manhattan's district attorney announced the charges in an updated indictment Monday.

Part of the statement read, "the filing of a superseding indictment containing additional charges against HARVEY WEINSTEIN, 66".

The disgraced Hollywood mogul was previously indicted in May on charges related to two women: first- and third-degree rape charges, and first-degree criminal sexual act, respectively, for alleged forcible sex acts against women in 2013 and 2004.

The District Attorney went on to call on "survivors" of Weinstein's "predatory abuse" to share their stories. These charges are the most severe of those he's faced so far, and as Class A-II felonies they could lead to a potential sentence of 10 years to life in prison.

More than 70 women have accused the Miramax film studio's co-founder of sexual misconduct, including rape, in a series of incidents dating back decades. Weinstein is now facing three more charges for attacks on two women in 2004 and 2013.

"Mr. Weinstein maintains that all of these allegations are false and he expects to be fully vindicated", Brafman said in a statement.

Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on a woman in July 2006, according to the new indictment. Weinstein's attorney, Benjamin Brafman, did not immediately return a Moneyish request for comment on the latest charges.

Weinstein was already facing three sex crime charges, concerning allegations involving two women, and carrying a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison.

Replays showed that Layun did in fact step on Neymar's leg, but his exaggerated reaction after the foul was something to behold. The last time these two met in a match, it was Brazil who registered a 2-0 victory over Mexico .

The women's accounts - and the public's willingness to believe them - emboldened others around the world to stand up to powerful, abusive men in what has come to be known as the #MeToo movement. An announcement from the DA's Office said the new charges were the result of months of investigation by prosecutors and the New York Police Department.

Weinstein is free on $1 million bail.

"Our investigation continues", Mr Vance said.
