  • Anthony Anderson

Earlier this year a woman reported that Black-ish actor Anthony Anderson sexually assaulted her when she was catering an event he threw.

The L.A. County district attorney's office said Thursday that the Beverly Hills Police Department presented it with a "third sex assault case involving Harvey Weinstein in June".

The case involving Weinstein brings the number under review by Los Angeles prosecutors to six. While law enforcement works closely with prosecutors once they are getting ready to hand over the results of an investigation, the D.A.'s office and its November 2017-established task force set up by Lacey to specifically look into allegations of sexual assault in the entertainment industry go over everything very carefully. Most of the cases have been declined due to statute of limitations issues.

According to The Blast, Anthony's case has been presented for consideration of charges by the LAPD and the case is still under review.

Meanwhile, Seagal has also faced multiple claims of sexual misconduct from high-profile Hollywood women, including actresses Portia de Rossi, Julianna Margulies, and Jenny McCarthy, who came forward with their stories as part of a wave of assault and harassment charges in the wake of the launch of the #MeToo movement.

The actor has previously denied all allegations of sexual misconduct against him. A spokesman for the DA's office said both were still under review.

Weinstein was indicted by NY prosecutors in May for charges of rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct against two women.
