New York Court Overturns Harvey Weinstein’s Rape Conviction

The highest court in New York has overturned the rape conviction of movie producer Harvey Weinstein, citing errors in the trial process. Weinstein, known for his power in the entertainment industry, was accused of abusing his position to coerce aspiring female actors into unwanted sexual encounters. The court found that the admission of testimony regarding uncharged prior sexual acts was prejudicial and served no legitimate purpose. Weinstein, who remains in prison, may face a retrial. He was also convicted of sex offenses in Los Angeles and sentenced to 16 years in prison there. The case is ongoing, and updates will follow.
