The case against Harvey Weinstein was built by Los Angeles police and prosecutors over two years, and Los Angeles Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey said Monday it was at times a wrenching process.
“We were working on investigating those cases. In regards to the victims in this case and other sexual assault cases, it was very challenging to get those victims to open up and tell us what they needed to tell us,” she said. “For some, it was very embarrassing, terrifying and so [we] told them we were just working to get the evidence we need to get to court.”
