Judge Allows More Witnesses to Testify Against Harvey Weinstein

HeadlineAug 27, 2019

In New York City, the judge overseeing the case against accused sexual predator and former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein will allow three more accusers to testify against him. One of those is “Sopranos” actress Annabella Sciorra. The accusers will testify as “prior bad acts” witnesses, allowing prosecutors to get around a statute of limitations on rape charges. Also on Monday, Weinstein pleaded not guilty to two new sexual assault charges. Weinstein’s trial has been delayed to January.
