Charges against former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein involve five women in incidents spanning from 2004 to 2013.
Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court on Wednesday to four counts of rape and seven other sexual assault counts.
Sheriff’s deputies brought the 69-year-old convicted rapist into court in a wheelchair. He was wearing a brown jail jumpsuit and face mask.
Attorney Mark Werksman entered the plea for the disgraced movie mogul a day after Weinstein was extradited to California from New York, where he was serving a 23-year prison term.
Weinstein spoke only to say “thank you” to Judge Sergio Tapia, who wished him good luck as the hearing ended.
He now awaits a second trial and the possibility of another lengthy sentence.
