Harvey Weinstein: Retrial Announced After Overturning of 2020 Rape Conviction

Former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein will be retried in New York, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office announced in court on Wednesday, one week after the state’s highest court overturned his 2020 rape conviction.

Weinstein appeared in court before Judge Curtis Farber in a wheelchair and a black suit, over four years since his conviction was celebrated as a landmark for the #MeToo movement, where women accused hundreds of men in entertainment, media, politics, and other sectors of sexual misconduct.

“There was nothing consensual about this conduct,” prosecutor Nicole Blumberg stated. “We believe in this case and will be retrying it.”
