Harvey Weinstein appeals for new trial claiming witnesses were used to make him look ‘loathsome’avril 5, 2021
According to the publication, Weinstein’s legal team has filed a 166-page appeal, claiming that witnesses were used to “merely [depict] Weinstein as loathsome” during the proceedings.
Weinstein was found guilty in February 2020 of third-degree rape and of a criminal sexual act. He was sentenced the following month to 23 years in prison.
Weinstein’s legal team signaled its intention to appeal shortly after the verdict became known in February.
