LA district attorney creates task force to tackle Hollywood sex abuse allegations

Hollywood is bracing for the criminal fallout from all the recent sexual assault allegations, and now has learned some of the offenders could face serious consequences. "It's affected me in every aspect of my life".

The powerful social media movement was started by activist Tarana Burke almost a decade ago, with the intent to help young black survivors of sexual abuse.

"Every report that's taken is given to a detective and every report is investigated", Madison said.

While police departments in London, New York, Los Angeles and Beverly Hills are looking into potential criminal charges against Weinstein, only the NYPD has said they believe they have enough evidence to make an arrest based on actress Paz de la Huerta's allegations Weinstein raped her twice in 2010.

Women made up a majority of the crowd, although men made a strong showing of support.

"I've had personal experiences of friends, of co-workers who were harassed, and nothing ever came of it", he said.

The marchers started on Hollywood Boulevard and walked along the "Walk of Fame" to CNN's headquarters.

Hundreds of people have marched in Hollywood in support of victims of sexual assault and harassment, inspired by the #MeToo social media campaign.

The march follows a torrent of assault and harassment allegations against public figures, set off by revelations about the movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. He admitted to the misconduct alleged against him in a statement on Friday and apologized for his actions.

"I've been sexually assaulted multiple times throughout my life", she said. Reuters has been unable to independently confirm any of the allegations. Men and women alike have accused everyone from Dustin Hoffman to Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct.
