In the summer of 2019, Univision retired Enrique Alvis, writer and producer of The fat and the skinny, de his positions in the chain after being splattered by several allegations that implicated him in a scandal of alleged sexual harassment.

Since then the case has been in the hands of the courts and could have been complicated in recent weeks, as reported in the newspaper The Miami Herald.

As the same outlet has exclusively detailed, prosecutors filed felony charges against the former Univision producer accused of sexually attacking several women in his workspace.

Initially, Albis faced misdemeanor charges for assault in a series of attacks over the years reported by three women who wanted to appear on the network’s leading program. However, this week the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office presented updated charges in two of the three pending cases where it does not come out very well.

The newspaper shares that Alvis, who is free on his own responsibility and awaiting trial, could be arrested and imminently placed in prison. A matter that neither he nor his lawyer wanted to comment on.

The first to expose the alleged abuses was the program Gossip No Like, space through which women began to parade telling their chilling testimonies, including that of the model Ivonne Lopez.

Although the initial accusations against Albis were only of assault, the case has taken a 180-degree turn. Currently and as TMH points out, he is charged with a felony of illegal detention, a misdemeanor of sudden robbery and a misdemeanor of injuries.
