Harvey Weinstein Pleads Not Guilty to Rape and Sex Charges

He is now out on a one million dollar (£751,060) bail, and must wear an electronic tracking device at all times.

A lawyer for Weinstein signaled he would use legal challenges to try to derail the case before it reaches trial, even as signs surfaced that prosecutors are showing their own resolve by continuing to interview potential victims.

Weinstein denies all allegations of nonconsensual sex.

The 66-year-old has said through his lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, that he has never had non-consensual sex.

The not guilty plea marked Weinstein's first court appearance since surrendering on May 25 after months of accusations by dozens of women alleging sexual and other misconduct.

Weinstein was due in a Manhattan court at 10am (local time) for a formal reading of the charges: he has been indicted for allegedly forcing a woman to perform oral sex on him in 2004, and for allegedly raping another at a Manhattan hotel in 2013.

Harvey Weinstein and attorney Benjamin Brafman arrive at State Supreme Court, June 5, 2018 in New York City.

Evans tells how he spoke of a possible place in his show for aspiring models "Project Runway", before forcing her into oral sex, and then went about the day as if nothing had happened.

He said Spiro - who resigned from Brafman & Associates in September but still had access to his company email - met with the woman only after leaving the law firm.

The film will be called Predator, and De Palma, who is best known for iconic films such as Carrie, The Untouchables and Scarface, has said the character will be inspired by Weinstein, but will have a different name.

"As bad as the crime of rape is, it is equally reprehensible to be falsely accused", Brafman said.

Mr Brafman has previously argued that unfair political pressure was placed on prosecutors to secure a conviction because of the high-profile nature of the case and the rise of the #MeToo movement highlighting sexual harassment.

Police set up a sting in which the woman recorded herself confronting Weinstein and him apologising for his conduct. He is wearing a Global Positioning System monitoring device, and his travel is restricted to the states of NY and CT.

After Weinstein was charged on May 25, Mr Brafman said in a statement outside the Manhattan court: "We intend to move very quickly to dismiss these charges".
