Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty in third sex assault case
10 July, 2018, 07:59
It was a familiar scene for the 66-year old movie mogul.
A grand jury had previously indicted Mr Weinstein on charges involving two women. The charges are related to separate incidents in 2004, 2006 and 2013. He looked ashen and appeared to have shed some weight from his hulking frame.
Brafman said during the court proceeding that he expects more criminal charges to be filed later, but didn't elaborate.
Weinstein, the producer of hit indie films such as "Pulp Fiction" and "Shakespeare in Love", was a force in Hollywood, renowned for his ability to pick art house fare that could cross over into the mainstream, and feared for his volatile temper.
However, Weinstein's career is in tatters.
The Associated Press generally does not identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly. His accusers include prominent actresses such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Ashley Judd.
More than 75 women have accused Weinstein, once one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, of wrongdoing.
Harvey Weinstein was led into a NY courtroom in handcuffs this morning and entered a plea of not guilty to charges of committing a forcible sexual act in the first degree. He faces a minimum of 10 years in prison if found guilty.
Details from the 2004 case align with an account by Lucia Evans, a former aspiring actress who told the New Yorker magazine in October 2017 that Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex. He did not elaborate on whether Weinstein was being paid for the work or whether he was working on legal cases besides his own. Police in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and London are also investigating allegations that the producer assaulted or sexually abused women. The judge at the time set bail at $1 million and allowed Weinstein to continue living at the estate and move between there and NY, site of his company, providing he surrender his passport and wear an ankle bracelet. Prosecutors Monday pushed for Weinstein to be confined to house arrest in New York City, CBS2's Natalie Duddridge reported.
Lead defense attorney BenjaminBrafman affirmed that the home has been sold, but said a stipulation of the sale was that Weinstein could stay in the house until February 2019. But the defense argued against changing his bail conditions and later announced the court had agreed. "And the suggestion that Mr. Weinstein raped anyone, just based on what I've seen, just based on the evidence I've seen, is just a preposterous allegation", Brafman said. A couple of TV satellite trucks were parked across the street, and about three dozen members of the media filled the courtroom.
Attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing the third woman, said outside court that her client will testify if the case goes to trial.
Allred later released a statement asking if Brafman was willing to put Weinstein on the witness stand.
