Prosecutors seek September retrial for Harvey Weinstein after rape conviction was tossed

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Prosecutors have asked for a September retrial for Harvey Weinstein, who was back in a New York courtroom for the first time since his 2020 rape conviction was overturned by an appeals court last week. Prosecutors on Wednesday suggested locking in a date after Labor Day for the retrial. The 72-year-old disgraced movie mogul remains detained because of a 2022 rape conviction in Los Angeles that netted a 16-year prison sentence. Weinstein maintains his innocence. The New York Court of Appeals vacated his conviction Thursday, after concluding a trial judge permitted jurors to see and hear too much evidence not directly related to the charges.
