Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty to new sex crime charges

Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty to new sex crime charges

Weinstein was sacked from the Weinstein Company, which has since filed for bankruptcy and been sold off.

Prosecutors, saying the new charges were "significantly more serious", had sought to have Weinstein forced to move to Manhattan and placed on house arrest.

Harvey Weinstein was arraigned in NY on Monday, where he pleaded not guilty to his latest sexual assault charges.

NY state Supreme Court Justice James Burke rejected a request by prosecutors to order house arrest for Weinstein, allowing him to remain free on the $1 million bail that has been in effect following his May not guilty plea on charges that he assaulted two other women, one in 2004 and one in 2013.

Weinstein pleaded not guilty after he was brought into the courtroom handcuffed, then uncuffed for the proceeding. His attorney said there was consent in the circumstance of the new accuser, whose identity was not revealed.

More than 75 women have come forward accusing Weinstein of sexual abuse.

Weinstein is now free on $1 million bail.

Weinstein sold the estate on the Long Island Sound to a neighbor for a reported $16 million in March but is permitted under the sale agreement to live there until February, according to Brafman.

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.

"Mr. Weinstein maintains that all of these allegations are false and he expects to be fully vindicated", Brafman said. Weinstein returned to the home after spending several months at an addiction treatment center in Arizona earlier this year.

"The charges he's facing now are substantially more serious than he was facing when he appeared before you", Illuzzi told the judge.

"He's obviously a man of substantial resources", Iluzzi said, so obtaining a property for home confinement would not be an issue. Prosecutors spent most of the 20-minute hearing pushing to have the mogul placed under house arrest in New York City, a proposal that Weinstein's attorney objected to, noting that he now lives in CT. 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. "The only place he goes these days is my office, to a Manhattan office where he is trying to make a living, and to doctor's appointments in CT", he said. "The house he lives in for the last 23 years [has been] the family home".

The 66-year-old disgraced Hollywood mogul was escorted by elbow into the court room in handcuffs, his face pasty and pale, and dressed in a dark suit, white shirt and dark tie. But he does not live in the neighborhood. After the prosecutor argued for a change in Weinstein's bail conditions, the judge ruled to keep them the same. She said she doubted Weinstein would do the same. Brafman later said he'd found it.
