Harvey Weinstein’s Los Angeles trial set for October 10

Harvey Weinstein can get maximum of 140 years in jail
Weinstein is accused of a series of assaults dating from 2004 to 2013.

Harvey Weinstein’s second trial on rape and sexual assault charges will begin in Los Angeles on Oct. 10, attorneys agreed on Friday.

Weinstein, 70, is facing 11 charges involving five alleged victims, which carry a theoretical maximum of 140 years. The trial is expected to take six to eight weeks, meaning it would run through the end of November.

Weinstein was wheeled into court by deputies on Friday morning, wearing a blue mask and a brown jail jumpsuit, Variety reports.

He is already serving a 23-year sentence for sexual assault and rape, after his conviction in his first trial in New York in 2020.
