Film producer Harvey Weinstein indicted for rape

Weinstein’s indictment by a grand jury follows his arrest and court appearance last Friday on charges related to two among the scores of women who have accused him of sexual misconduct, all of which he has denied.

Weinstein’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said at the time the disgraced producer intends to plead not guilty.

Earlier on Wednesday, Weinstein declined to testify before the grand jury after a judge denied a request by Brafman to postpone the appearance. Brafman had argued Weinstein was denied access to information about the case and lacked preparation time.

The grand jury indictment follows a months-long investigation with the New York Police Department. Police have not identified the two women but said the crimes took place in 2004 and 2013.

Weinstein has denied having had non-consensual sex with anyone.
