A third accuser has come forward with allegations that she was the victim of sexual misconduct at the hands of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office announced on Monday that Weinstein, 66, was charged with a first-degree criminal sexual act and two counts of predatory sexual assault pertaining to conduct from 2006; the latter charges carry a minimum 10-year sentence and a maximum penalty of life in prison. The superseding indictment adds to the first- and third-degree rape charges and the first-degree criminal sexual act charges he received in May. The rape charges relate to an alleged victim from 2013 who, like the third victim, remains unnamed.
