LOS ANGELES (AP) – Harvey Weinstein has pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles courtroom to four counts of rape and seven other sexual assault counts.
Sheriff’s deputies brought the 69-year-old convicted rapist into court Wednesday in a wheelchair. He was wearing a brown jail jumpsuit and face mask.
The disgraced movie mogul with his lawyer entered the plea a day after he was extradited to California from New York, where he was serving a 23-year prison term.
He now awaits a second trial on a second coast, and the possibility of another lengthy sentence. Weinstein’s charges involve five women and span from 2004 to 2013.
The 11 counts together could bring a sentence of 140 years.
