Harvey Weinstein Sex Assault Case Headed To trial In Manhattan

(New York, NY-AP) — The Harvey Weinstein sex assault case is headed to trial. A Manhattan judge just refused to dismiss criminal charges against the disgraced movie mogul. The 66-year-old is facing five rape and sex assault charges after one sex assault charge was dismissed earlier. Weinstein’s lawyer, Ben Brafman, argued that the entire case was tainted by botched police work, including alleged interference by Police Detective Nicholas DiGaudio with a witness and accuser.

But, Assistant District Attorney Kevin Wilson said there’s no way allegations against the detective have prejudiced the case. More than 80 women across the nation have come forward since late last year to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct, prompting the Me Too movement.
