After Weinstein groped Gutierrez, she went to the NYPD to file a complaint to the Special Victims Division and set up a sting operation that involved her wearing a wire. She was 22 at the time of the incident and according to the New Yorker, “She picked up the call while sitting with investigators from the Special Victims Division, who listened in on the call and devised a plan: Gutierrez would agree to see the show the following day and then meet with Weinstein. She would wear a wire and attempt to extract a confession or incriminating statement.”
Tabloids were unaware of her plan with the police and made it look like she was an opportunist, looking for fame and money, after she continued to see the Hollywood executive after reporting him.
In the recording, Weinstein seemingly admits to sexually harassing the young model at one of his hotels. The following is an excerpt from the recording:
“Oh, please, I’m sorry, just come on in,” Weinstein said. “I’m used to that. Come on. Please.”
“You’re used to that?” asked Gutierrez.
“Yes. Come in … I won’t do it again, come on, sit here. Sit here for a minute, please?”
She continued to resist.
“I will never do another thing to you,” he said. “Five minutes. Don’t ruin your friendship with me for five minutes.”
According to reports, the NYPD claimed it investigated a misdemeanor sexual abuse complaint, which was referred to the Manhattan district attorney’s office. The office made the choice not to file charges against Weinstein.
