The actress, Rose McGowan, who accused Mr Weinstein of rape, told the BBC it was an "amazing day for his survivors".

Harvey Weinstein was once the most powerful man in the entertainment industry.

Brafman told the Post that one of the unidentified accusers is a woman who had a decade-long affair with Weinstein, going as far as to call her claim "a truly insane allegation of forcible rape, made by a woman who we have identified, with whom Mr. Weinstein enjoyed a 10-year "consensual" sexual relationship that continued for years, both before and even "after" the date of the alleged forcible encounter".

Still, she expressed disappointment about Weinstein's own approach to the charges: He had an opportunity to take accountability for his years of allegedly damaging and hurting women but has instead chosen to plead not guilty.

A friend of his had called the police, having become anxious because he had not had contact with Painter for days on end. An autopsy and toxicology report will be done to determine the official cause of death.

Prosecutors left court without commenting.

Mr Vance's statement said Weinstein was charged by the grand jury with rape in the first and third degrees and a criminal sexual act in the first degree. The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assaults without their consent.

He paid $1 million in cash, 10 per cent of what is required to make bail, he was released.

Brafman said that he was limited in what he could say about the 90-minute conference Tuesday in the chambers of Judge James Burke because a transcript of it was sealed.

LeBron James , who played all 48 minutes, had the monster game the Cavs needed from him: 35 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists. However, the defending champions struggled from the floor, trailed by as many as 17 points and were down 51-41 at halftime.

Brafman also claimed the Manhattan District's Attorney's office is under "inappropriate" and "unprecedented" pressure to pursue the prosecution.

Incidentally, Brafman represented Strauss-Kahn just as he's representing Harvey Weinstein, and Joan Illuzzi is the same prosecutor on both cases as well.

"You can only imagine what your state of mind would be if you were accused of a very serious crime that you maintain you didn't commit", he said.

Until the scandal, Weinstein was among the most influential forces in American film. "The public statement from his lawyer was intended only to denigrate all the courageous women who came forward and spoke out against him", Sciorra wrote. Companies he co-founded, Miramax and the Weinstein Co., were behind such hits as "Pulp Fiction", "Shakespeare in Love" and "The King's Speech".
