Judge declines to throw out Harvey Weinstein criminal case
Film producer Harvey Weinstein arrived at a Manhattan criminal court on Thursday (December 20), ahead of a hearing in his case for sexual assaults on two women.
Weinstein was accompanied by his attorney Benjamin Brafman.
The producer has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone following accusations by more than 70 women, mostly young actresses and other women employed in the movie business, of sexual misconduct, including rape, dating back decades.
The accusations led to the #MeToo movement in which hundreds of women publicly accuse powerful men in business, politics and entertainment of sexual harassment and abuse.
