Second Day of the Harvey Weinstein Rape Trial

Published

on

The second day of the Harvey Weinstein rape trial jury continues.
On the second day of the rape trial, jurors are back on their seats.

This panel consists of 7 men and five women and has a lot of questions as the case goes on. They were questioning some legal terms such as consent and forcible compulsion.

They also wanted to see the evidence from Weinstein’s email regarding his agency on private spying in 2017.

Weinstein is currently 67 years old and is being charged with rape from different women.

This is about a woman in Manhattan hotel in 2013 and was forced to do oral sex on another woman, TV and film production assistant Mimi Haley in 2006.

The jurors asked about the clarity of Weinstein’s case on Sciorra’s allegation.

It was then noted that her complaint was too old to be used for charging although it could be used as a basis for charges on alleging him as a sexual predator.

However, Judge James Burke told them, “You must not speculate as to any other charges that are not before you. only the charges that are before you.”

The testimonies from 3 other accusers who were not part of the case but were allowed to be witnesses so that they could confirm if Weinstein used the same tactics on the other women.

According to the lawyers of Weinstein, those acts were consensual, and they were just friendly, flirtatious emails from women who were sent to Weinstein and some meetings they had with him after the alleged incidents.

In California, he was said to have attacked two women on two consecutive nights. One of them was raped, unnamed.

Whereas, the other woman, Lauren Young, testified that she was trapped in the bathroom with Weinstein and he groped her while he masturbated. Her claims were not part of the charges.

She is one of the witnesses to provide evidence of his said tactics. She said that social media influencer, Claudia Salinas, was outside the door while this happened but she denied this when she was called on.

Many of the accusers of Weinstein have reached the civil settlement of around $47 million and $25 million of that is for compensating these women who were allegedly abused.

This agreement needs the approval of the court.

Some of the women, including actress Rose McGowan, said that they are opposing the settlement.

A lot of alleged incidents happened several years ago already making it difficult for them to sue Weinstein. Some of them were even dismissed.

Jeff Herman, the lawyer, said that he hoped this would in some ways ease the women who were sexually assaulted no matter what the outcome would be.

According to him, “She thought she won the day we filed a lawsuit. She thought she would never have a voice.”

If convicted, Weinstein would face up to 28 years of imprisoning on the California charges although he said that all these allegations were consensual.

He is meant to appear in the LA court regardless of what the outcome in the Weinstein New York trial will be.
