In the past, Brafman had said that Weinstein denied any allegations of "non-consensual sex".

Weinstein could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted of either offence.

Dozens of other women have accused him of sexual harassment and although he has denied many of them, Harvey Weinstein's behaviour was labelled by the New York Times to have been Hollywood's worst kept secret and according to numerous articles, that behaviour of his has been going on for years.

After Weinstein pled not guilty, Brafman addressed the court. Weinstein pleaded not guilty Tuesday to rape and criminal sex act charges in NY.

Weinstein appeared before a judge in Manhattan Tuesday after a grand jury charged him last week with raping a woman in a hotel room and forcing another to perform oral sex in his office.

Weinstein, the onetime Tinseltown powerbroker whose films earned dozens of Oscars, was charged with rape and another sex crime in NY late last month, almost eight months after the first public allegations against him surfaced.

"Weinstein had until recently seemed untouchable, harnessing his wealth and his influence in the movie industry to intimidate women out of speaking publicly and, only three years ago, withstand an investigation into groping allegations", the NYT report said.

'Days Gone' Gets Release of February 2019
In a string of pre-E3 news related to the game, an official trailer announces its release date: February 22 . But with no release date in sight for TLoU II , perhaps Days Gone will fill the zombie-survival void.

The allegations sparked a wave of "national reckoning" against sexual harassment and assault in the United States, known as the Weinstein effect.

Weinstein Co. had objected to the suits proceeding in NY district court, saying they would distract the company from an "efficient and orderly liquidation process". A judge ordered him released on a $1 million cash bail on condition that he surrender his U.S. passport and agree to wear a location-tracking device. Boyce told ABC News.

The #MeToo movement has seen people around the world come forward with cases of sexual mistreatment, leading to the downfall of powerful men across industries, including Oscar victor Kevin Spacey.

Weinstein has reportedly spent months in treatment for sex addiction.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office is now reviewing five investigations into the 66-year-old - two brought by Beverly Hills police and three that were investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department's elite Robbery-Homicide Division.

Gershman said Weinstein faces an uphill climb. But since The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual assaults unless they come forward publicly, the identity of only one of those victims is known. He was ordered to remain in NY state or CT.
