Additional sexual assault charges have been filed against Harvey Weinstein by the Manhattan District Attorney, the D.A.'s office announced on Monday.

The details: The new charges stem from 2006 allegations brought by a third woman, and include counts of a criminal sexual act in the first degree and two counts of predatory sexual assault — which carry a minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum sentence of life in prison. Weinstein was indicted by a grand jury at the end of May on rape charges for his alleged assaults of two other women in 2013 and 2004.
