Several news outlets on Thursday are reporting that Harvey Weinstein, the once powerful Hollywood film producer who has been accused by scores of women of sexual misconduct—ranging from harassment to rape—will turn himself into law enforcement officials in New York City.

The New York Daily News reports Weinstein is "expected to surrender to authorities Friday to face sex assault charges in connection with an attack on a student actress." According to the report:

It was not immediately clear if Weinstein will be hit with additional charges related to other victims.
