Law enforcement officials say Harvey Weinstein is expected to surrender to authorities Friday morning to face criminal charges in a months-long investigation into allegations that he sexually assaulted women.
The two officials said the criminal case involves allegations by Lucia Evans, a former actress who was among the first women to speak out about Weinstein.
The case would be the first criminal charge against the film producer since scores of women began coming forward to accuse him of harassment or assault.
The precise charges he is to face were not immediately clear.
The two officials spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to discuss the investigation.
A grand jury has been hearing evidence in the case for weeks.
High profile actresses like Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek and many others have come forward to talk about their experiences with Weinstein in recent months.
