Weinstein's defense team rejects such testimony as prejudicial, and want Judge Burke to keep it out of the trial.
(Baez is best known for his defense of Casey Anthony, who was acquitted on charges of killing her young daughter in Florida in 2011.)But both prosecutors and defense attorneys sought to kick reporters and the public out of the preliminary hearing to discuss the matter.
This week he sent a letter to the lawyer for accuser Melissa Thompson (she says Weinstein raped her during a business meeting at a Manhattan hotel in 2011 and has filed a civil lawsuit against him) asking for emails that allegedly show Thompson acknowledged she had a consensual relationship with Weinstein.
Since October 2017, Weinstein has been accused by nearly 90 women of sexual misconduct ranging from sexual harassment and groping to sexual intimidation and rape, in multiple jurisdictions and dating back decades.Prosecutors seek to bring in other women accusers of Weinstein to testify at his trial about how he allegedly committed similar crimes against them, showing a pattern of alleged "prior bad acts" even though he was never charged with crimes.Prosecutors want to use this testimony to impeach Weinstein's credibility should he take the stand in his own defense.Burke indicated he made a decision on whether to allow the "prior bad acts" testimony from other accusers but he chose not to announce his decision in open court. Weinstein issued a statement to USA TODAY through his spokesman, Juda Engelmayer, praising members of his legal team. Weinstein was happy with his attorneys, and the way that Marianne Bertuna and Diana Fabi Samson were able to achieve the necessary goals," the statement said. This is going to give us an ample opportunity to dig into the case."The fallen former movie mogul is scheduled to be tried on five counts of sexual assault, including rape, involving two female accusers."The time frame now allows his entire team to skillfully prepare for a fact-filled and strong defense."Weinstein's lead defense attorney, celebrity lawyer Jose Baez, told reporters he is happy about the trial delay. Weinstein denies all allegations of nonconsensual sex.
