Disgraceful film producer Harvey Weinstein was tried on Friday in Los Angeles on charges of assaulting five women.
Weinstein, who was charged in the UK this month for being vulgarly assaulted in London in 1996, has been charged with 11 felony charges in California.
The 70-year-old boy, dressed in brown prison clothes, appeared in a court in Los Angeles and was informed of the date of the next hearing.
Prosecutors initially charged Oscar winners with numerous sex crimes against two women in January 2020, and the assault allegedly occurred years ago.
They added more counts later in the year involving three other women, dating back to 2004.
The trial in the Los Angeles Superior Court will begin on October 10. It is expected to last about 8 weeks.
Weinstein was brought to California from a prison in New York, where he raped an ambitious actress and committed criminal sexual intercourse against a former production assistant for 23 years.
His imprisonment was a landmark of the #MeToo movement and exploded after the media exposed his actions.
Nearly 90 women, including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Salma Hayek, have accused Weinstein of harassment and assault.
The producer of “Pulp Fiction” claims that all his sexual encounters have reached an agreement.
When the allegations were flooded, the Metropolitan Police Department in London said it was investigating a series of allegations of sexual assault against him.
Prior to Weinstein’s claim, he and his brother Bob were Hollywood’s ultimate power players.
They co-founded Miramax Films in 1979, a distribution company named after his mother Miriam and his father Max. It was sold to Disney in 1993.
Their hits included “Shakespeare in Love” in 1998, and Weinstein shared the Oscar’s Best Work Award. Over the years, Weinstein’s films have received over 300 Oscar nominations and 81 statuettes.
