New York City authorities may not be pursuing a criminal case against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein regarding rape allegations brought by an actress, it was reported Friday.

According to CBS News, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office has told some people criminal charges may not be filed in the case of Paz de la Huerta, despite the New York City Police Department saying last month there was "credible" evidence to build a criminal case. 

The Manhattan DA declined to comment to CBS, citing the "active investigation."

De la Huerta claimed Weinstein raped her twice in 2010. Her lawyer told CBS there are "copious amounts of evidence and no reason to delay indictment," and called on the DA to "convene a grand jury by the end of next week or expect the protests to begin."

Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and/or sexual assault. He was fired from the production company he founded in October after the first allegations were made public.

Weinstein has denied violating the law in the de la Huerta case. He hired a lawyer to represent him who once worked for former International Monetary Fund Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn after he was accused of rape in 2011.
