Vindication, triumph, also fear: Weinstein accusers react

May 25, 2018 - 5:45 pm

NEW YORK (AP) — The stunning sight of Harvey Weinstein in handcuffs at his arraignment Friday has evoked an array of emotions in his accusers.

Some are claiming victory, like actress Rose McGowan, who tweeted: "We got you, Harvey." But she and others cautioned there was still a long way to go before they might possibly see the disgraced mogul behind bars.

Accuser Louisette Geiss says that she is still frightened by the sight of Weinstein, who she said still appeared powerful, and unrepentant. She calls Weinstein's arrest "a win" but "not THE win."

Weinstein has consistently denied allegations of non-consensual sex, and his lawyer said he would fight to get the charges dismissed.
