NYPD Investigating Harvey Weinstein’s Victim Payouts

As you may recall, Harvey was already under investigation by the NYPD for the rape of actress Paz De La Huerta. However, with the case being 10 years old, the D.A. ran into too many difficulties and now feel it may be impossible to prosecute.

But, there may be a loophole to get some formal charges in on Harvey.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that the NY District Attorney D.A. is investigating DOZENS of payments Weinstein doled out to keep his victims quiet and his multiple sexual misconduct cases out of court. They’re looking to decipher the source of the money paid out.

According to the D.A., if any of the cash was secretly siphoned from The Weinstein Company, rather than Harvey’s own personal accounts…he stands to be charged with embezzlement.

Harvey’s lawyer says all Harvey’s accounts and payments are on the up and up, and once they’re done with their lil investigation they’ll see there’s not even anything there to prosecute.

SMH. We guess it all boils down to how careful Harvey was with the books while tossing cash at his victims.
