Harvey Weinstein arrives at Manhattan court to face predatory sexual assault charge

Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty in third sex assault case

His lawyer Benjamin Brafman argued there was no evidence the 66-year-old Weinstein would flee.

'He is doing as well as can be expected for someone under these circumstances, ' Brafman said.

Weinstein was all smiles as he got into a auto to return to the CT estate which he sold for $16million in March but has been granted permission to stay at until February 2019.

Famed attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing the third victim, said her client will testify if this case gets pushed to trial but she doubts Harvey's lawyer would allow since Harvey would get crossed examined by prosecutors.

Last month, the Manhattan District Attorney hit Weinstein with heavier charges than he had previously been facing in NY, a more serious degree of sexual assault which could potentially put him in prison for life.

He had already pleaded not guilty to two counts of rape and one first-degree criminal sex act charge, and he is out on $1 million cash bail. It carries a potential life sentence if convicted.

Weinstein was subdued throughout the hearing, pleading "not guilty" and responding "yes, sir" when the judge told him to stay away from his accusers. His attorney said there was consent in the circumstance of the new accuser, whose identity was not revealed. Weinstein's bail arrangement was not changed and he was allowed to return to his home in CT.

He did not provide any more details about Weinstein's involvement in the first, such as whether he is paid for his work or if he's assisting with cases other than his own.

The disgraced mogul's lawyer, Ben Brafman, said he expects more charges to follow, but added: "Today we won this round". Weinstein returned to the home after spending several months at an addiction treatment center in Arizona earlier this year.

Dressed in a black suit jacket and tie, Weinstein appeared in court in Manhattan to hear the new charges on Monday. "He should be confined to home arrest and that home should be in Manhattan".

At Least One Person Killed When Helicopter Crashed Into Residential Neighborhood
Brook Sweeney, who lives across the street from a house on fire, told the newspaper the whole house shook when the crash occurred. The FAA tweeted Sunday night that they and the NTSB would investigate to determine a probable cause of the crash.


The new charges were announced by prosecutors on July 2. He cited multiple reasons Weinstein shouldn't "be pushed to NY", including the fact that his doctors were close to his CT estate and that a rental in Manhattan would cause a "circus atmosphere" because reporters would camp out there.

'He has no place to live [in Manhattan],' Brafman told the judge. "The house he lives in for the last 23 years [has been] the family home".

Pale and pasty faced, the 66-year-old former Tinseltown titan was escorted by elbow into a NY courtroom in handcuffs, dressed in a dark suit, tie and white shirt. But he does not live in the neighborhood. But the defense argued against changing his bail conditions and later announced the court had agreed.

'He [has been] very helpful to the defense so far, ' Brafman said.
