As a writer and producer, Eric Weinberg made his name in Hollywood. Now the 62-year-old is on trial: he is said to have used his status to lure young women into his house.

Los Angeles – Hollywood producer Eric Weinberg, who worked on hit shows like ‘Scrubs’ and ‘Californication,’ has been charged with rape and other sexual assault. The 62-year-old has been accused by five women that Weinberg allegedly abused between 2014 and 2019, prosecutors in Los Angeles said on Wednesday.

The accused used his Hollywood status to lure young women into his home under the pretense of photo shoots, where he allegedly abused them, prosecutor George Gascón said. The allegations include rape, forced oral sex and assault. Weinberg is scheduled to appear before the magistrate at the end of October. He was initially released on bail of five million dollars (around five million euros).

More than two dozen women described alleged attacks by Weinberg in conversations with the “Hollywood Reporter”, the trade journal reported on Wednesday. The first cases would date back to 2000. The producer had already been arrested in 2014, but due to a lack of evidence there were no charges at the time.

As a writer and producer, Weinberg has worked on numerous productions, including 100 episodes of the hit comedy Scrubs, starring Zach Braff as a young doctor through 2006. He also worked on shows like Graves, Californian and Anger Management. He was nominated five times for the Emmy television award. dpa
