Harvey Weinstein faces new charges of sexual assault in California, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

The new charges are expected to be filed later Monday — the same day in which a rape trial against Weinstein began in New York.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Weinstein will face charges of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by use of force and sexual battery by restraint.

In 2017, Weinstein was the subject of a number of investigative reports in which dozens of women accused him of sexual assault and rape. The allegations spanned decades.

More on this as it develops.
