Harvey Weinstein is getting slapped with more sexual assault charges, RadarOnline.com has learned.

In May, the disgraced producer was charged with third-degree rape and committing a criminal sexual act in the first degree against two women in 2013 and 2014.

Now, the Manhattan District Attorney of New York City has announced they've filed "a superseding indictment containing additional charges" against Weinstein.

"Pursuant to the D.A.'s Office's ongoing investigation, the Grand Jury has charged WEINSTEIN with an additional count of Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree for a forcible sexual act against a third woman in 2006, as well as two counts of Predatory Sexual Assault, a Class A-II felony which carries a minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum sentence of life imprisonment," read the D.A.'s statement.

These charges follow an investigation against the 66-year-old seven months after several women alleged Weinstein sexually abused them.

"A Manhattan Grand Jury has now indicted Harvey Weinstein on some of the most serious sexual offenses that exist under New York's Penal Law," said District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance. "This indictment is the result of the extraordinary courage exhibited by the survivors who have come forward. Our investigation continues."

Weinstein, who is currently free on a $10 million bond, has maintained his innocence, and he pleaded not guilty to the previous charges.
