The lawyer of Movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein, Ben Branfman, announced his client had pleaded «not guilty» to a New York court, on Friday. Weinstein surrendered to the authorities earlier in the day, following a probe into allegations of sexual misconduct by the Manhattan District Attorney's office and the NYPD. His lawyer, Ben Branfman, spoke about the case as he left court, «Mr Weinstein has... Еще always maintained that any sexual activity he engaged in was consensual. He has vehemently denied any of the allegations which suggested he engaged in non-consensual sexual activity.» The movie producer has been charged with rape in the first and third degree, in cases involving two women. The charges came on Friday, seven months after stories started coming out in the press of women alleging his sexual misconduct.
