Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced today that television producer Eric Weinberg has been charged in an 18-count complaint for sexually assaulting five women at different times between 2014 and 2019.

“The defendant relied on his Hollywood credentials to lure young women for photo shoots where he allegedly sexually assaulted them,” District Attorney Gascón said. “Power and influence can corrupt some to hurt others that often leads to a lifetime of trauma for those who are victimized.

My office’s Bureau of Victim Services is here to help in the healing process to ensure all victims have the guidance and support they need on the road to recovery.”

Weinberg (dob 9/21/60) was charged in case BA509407 with six counts of sexual penetration by use of force, four counts of oral copulation, three counts of forcible rape, two counts of sexual battery by restraint and one count each of assault by means of force likely to cause great bodily injury, attempted sexual penetration by use of force and false imprisonment by violence.

Weinberg is out of custody after posting a $5 million bond.

He is expected to be arraigned on October 25 in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. The case was filed for warrant on September 30.

On two separate occasions in 2014, Weinberg approached two women at public locations and told them he was a photographer. In each instance, he was in communication with the victims who eventually went to his home where he is accused of sexually assaulting them.

In 2017, the defendant used the same ruse to bring a young woman back to his house where he allegedly sexually assaulted her. Weinberg also is accused of sexually assaulting two women in separate incidents in 2018 and 2019.

Since his initial arrest in July, dozens of additional potential victims have contacted law enforcement. Each incident will be thoroughly investigated and reviewed for additional charging. Anyone who has additional information is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles Police Department at (323) 561-3272 or email at or call LADA’s Bureau of Victim Services at (800) 380-3811.

The case remains under investigation by LAPD.
