Fallen movie magnate Harvey Weinstein was moved at a New York jail Tuesday early morning into the custody of authorities for extradition to California, where he deals with trial for major sex criminal activities.
Weinstein, who has actually been secured in New York serving a 23-year jail sentence considering that his conviction in 2020 for sex offenses in Manhattan, in June was bought extradited to California by a judge in Erie County, New York.
The 69-year-old is charged in Los Angeles with rape, sexual battery and other criminal activities in connection with 5 events that supposedly happened in between 2004 and 2013 in Los Angeles.
He confronts 140 years in jail if founded guilty in the Los Angeles cases.
“This morning at approximately 9:25 custody of Mr. Harvey Weinstein was handed over to the appropriate officials for transport to the state of California per a court order,” the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision stated in a declaration.
The movie manufacturer, who co-founded the home entertainment business Miramax, ended up being a leading bad guy in the #MeToo motion after several ladies implicated him of sexual misbehavior.
He was founded guilty in February 2020 in Manhattan Supreme Court of a first-degree criminal sexual act versus production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and of third-degree rape for assaulting ambitious starlet Jessica Mann in a hotel space in 2013.
Weinstein’s legal representatives submitted an appeal of his conviction in April.
His legal representatives had actually refuted his extradition to Los Angeles, mentioning his bad health.
Before his disgrace, Weinstein had actually produced acclaimed movies consisting of “Pulp Fiction,” “Shakespeare in Love” and “Gangs of New York.”
