SEXUAL MISCONDUCT-HOLLYWOOD PROSECUTIONS

LOS ANGELES — The #MeToo movement has sent powerful Hollywood players into exile. It has put only a few into handcuffs or prison, and it’s increasingly appearing that may stay the norm. Harvey Weinstein has been charged with sexual assault in New York and Bill Cosby sent to prison in Pennsylvania in the year since Weinstein stories in the New York Times and the New Yorker set off waves of revelations of sexual misconduct in Hollywood. But those two big figures have been exceptions. A task force started in November by the Los Angeles County district attorney to handle the surge in allegations against entertainment figures has taken up criminal cases involving nearly two dozen suspects. None have been charged, and most will not be. By Andrew Dalton. 900 words, photos, by 11 a.m.
