Joan Vollero a spokeswoman for DA Cyrus Vance Jr stated to PageSix that the case against Weinstein was taken seriously and a thorough investigation was conducted by their sex crimes unit. She also stated that after investigation and looking at all the evidence a criminal charge is not supported.
The accuser Ambra Battilana, 22, had also seemed to be suspicious as she refused to cooperate with authorities for four days after her claim. Moreover her former lawyer, Mark Jay Heller dumped this case because he was uncomfortable with Battilana’s machinations and stated that she does not appear to be a serious victim.
The police also had the Italian model to place a call to Weinstein which they listened to and also recorded. In the call he does admit that he might have been a little frisky with her but he does not admit to any crime. Weinstein also does not deny that he touched her breast nu than he could argue that being a producer he had to know if her breasts were the real deal.
