Accusations by five women
Harvey Weinstein awaits next trial
10/10/2022 11:57 am
Harvey Weinstein has been in prison for over two years. Nevertheless, further allegations of abuse against him must be legally processed. Like now in Los Angeles, where five women are seriously incriminating the formerly successful producers of Hollywood.
Former American film mogul Harvey Weinstein is on trial again after his conviction in New York. At the start of the trial in Los Angeles, the twelve jurors will be chosen from Monday evening.
The 70-year-old has been charged with 11 charges, including rape and other assault. It is about the allegations of five women from 2004 to 2013. Their names are paraphrased and anonymized as “Jane Doe #1 – #5”.
Most of the incidents are said to have taken place in hotels in Beverly Hills. As before, Weinstein has denied any guilt in this case. Sexual acts have always been consensual, he explains.
23 years in prison
Weinstein was sentenced in New York in March 2020 to 23 years in prison for, among other things, rape and assault. The judgment marked a milestone in legal history.
In the high-profile case that sparked the #MeToo movement since 2017, the jury believed the testimonies of several women, despite Weinstein’s pleas of innocence and a lack of physical evidence. More than 80 women accused Weinstein of sexual assault during #MeToo.
Weinstein is currently in prison in Los Angeles. The British public prosecutor also approved the charges against him in June.
Harvey Weinstein has produced some of the most successful Hollywood films since the 1990s with his companies Miramax and The Weinstein Company. The films made under his auspices include “Pulp Fiction” (1994), “The English Patient” (1996), “Good Will Hunting” (1997) and “Gangs of New York” (2002).
Weinstein’s misconduct would have been an open secret in Hollywood. Yet many of his companions remained silent for decades. It was only when the first actresses dared to make his violations public in 2017 that stars such as director Quentin Tarantino or actor George Clooney distanced themselves from him.
