Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Senior LAPD official: We have two dozen active investigations into Hollywood-related sex crimes”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

An official with the Los Angeles Police Department revealed over the weekend they have two dozen open sex crime investigations connected to individuals in the entertainment industry.

According to NBC News, a senior LAPD official said the investigations “involve individuals who are known publicly as well as others who have not yet been identified.” The crimes include both misdemeanors and felonies and range from sexual battery to rape. In many cases, there are multiple complaints connected to the same individual.

Unfortunately, the official also said he expects the number of cases to rise in the coming months, as more and more victims of sex crimes continue to go public with their stories. The official did not name any of the individuals who are under investigation.

The official also explained that about half of the cases fall beyond the state’s statue of limitations, which means the crimes happened so long ago that they can no longer be prosecuted.

At least two individuals could be Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey, who have had numerous allegations of sexual misconduct waged against them over the last several weeks.
