Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has been accused of sexual assault from
countless women in the entertainment industry, and more and more actresses
are speaking out about his alleged actions. While there is overwhelming
evidence regarding these accusations, Weinstein is still being held to
a unique standard in terms of the law. Intent has not yet been established,
according to deputy Karen Friedman Agnifilo. However, we believe this
is simply laughable as sex crime arrests are common with far less evidence
than that of which is presented to Weinstein.
Our very own Attorney Richard Southard was asked to comment regarding this
shocking unfolding of events, and commented to the New York Daily News:
“I think it’s completely hypocritical that they say that they
can't infer intent when someone's a millionaire but when it's
an average person they have no problem inferring intent and putting it
in motion papers.” Our legal team is of the belief that it is absolutely
troubling a member of the Hollywood elite is able to avoid these consequences
so comfortably, while the average person is quickly thrown into jail and
has all of their freedoms stripped in an instant.
