Scrubs’ producer Eric Weinberg charged with sex assaults
Weinberg was first taken into custody in July on suspicion of “sexual assaults including rape” that reportedly took place between the years 2012 and 2019.
According to the detectives with the LAPD, Weinberg “appears to have targeted women in grocery stores, coffee shops, and other public locations” and invited them to his house for picture sessions. It was at his home that the alleged sexual assaults took place.
In the past, detectives have said that there is a possibility that there are further victims who were maybe raped as far back as the early 1990s.
The television programs “Scrubs,” “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher,” “Californication,” and “American Dad” are among those on which Weinberg has been credited as a producer and writer.
