Los Angeles District Attorney said on Friday that six more counts of forcible sexual assault have been added to charges levelled against disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein.

According to the statement from District Attorney Jackie Lacey, the new charges involve two victims and stem from incidents that occurred more than a decade ago.

Weinstein, who was convicted earlier this year in New York for sex crimes, now faces a total of four counts each of forcible rape and forcible oral copulation, two counts of sexual battery by restraint and one count of sexual penetration by use of force.
