Harvey Weinstein Files to Dismiss All Criminal Criminal Charges in New York, Has New Emails from Alleged Victim


more to come…

from a press release from attorney Benjamin Brafman…



The attorneys for Harvey Weinstein today filed legal Motions seeking a dismissal of the remaining counts of the Indictment, citing a Grand Jury presentation that was deeply flawed by the admitted police misconduct and the Perjury of at least one of the complainants which already led to the dismissal of Count Six. According to Weinstein’s attorneys, the remaining five Counts should also be dismissed because the Perjury and police misconduct irreparably prejudiced the Grand Jury and emails and texts from the alleged rape victim and Mimi Haleyi to Harvey Weinstein after the dates of the alleged assaults, clearly demonstrate that any sexual contact between Weinstein and both of these women was purely consensual.

In addition, the motions also seek the dismissal of both Sexual Predator charges as based on constitutionally flawed legal theories and not supported by credible evidence.
