Harvey Weinstein wants sexual assault charges against him dismissed

first_imgKENA BETANCUR/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein returns to court Thursday seeking to get the criminal charges against him thrown out.Weinstein’s appearance, a little more than six months after his arrest in New York, comes as defense attorneys have argued the case has been tainted by the conduct of a lead police detective and the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.One charge has already been tossed, and the defense wants the rest of the case to go too.“This case is damaged goods,” defense attorney Benjamin Brafman told ABC News.The Manhattan District Attorney’s office declined to comment but has previously expressed confidence in its case against Weinstein, who faces five counts, including rape. The defense has taken particular aim at the rape charge, which is based on the account of an unnamed accuser that Brafman said subsequently carried on a “multi-year, consensual sexual relationship” with Weinstein.Brafman has insisted the district attorney’s office erred when it failed to show the grand jury email exchanges involving the woman and Weinstein.“They withheld the emails between the alleged rape victim and Mr. Weinstein which would have destroyed her credibility,” Brafman said in an interview with ABC News.“A prosecutor in New York has no obligation to present exculpatory evidence to a grand jury,” said Michael F. Bachner, a former prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office now in private practice at Bachner & Associates. “What a prosecutor can’t do is mislead the grand jury by not putting in the whole story if it’s necessary for context.”Bachner, who is not involved in the case, said the judge should throw out the indictment but give prosecutors time to seek a new one based on the totality of evidence.“Though the emails are significant, it’s not the kind of evidence that would have changed the grand jury’s vote to indict,” he said.Weinstein is charged with raping a woman in a hotel room in March 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on another woman in 2006 at his Manhattan apartment. He has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.The Manhattan District Attorney’s office already agreed to drop one of the charges after it learned a lead police detective in the case instructed a potential witness to keep certain doubts to herself.The defense has said the conduct of the detective “irreparably tainted” the entire case but prosecutors have said there is “ample evidence” to proceed.The decision whether to dismiss is left to Judge James Burke, a former prosecutor appointed to the bench by then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 2001. He has since been reappointed two more times.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

“It’s not necessary to change” – Manager gives his opinion on…

first_imgThe striker’s home country media has been a little obsessed with the rumours about his future, as they expect him to join a bigger club in the next transfer window.Just yesterday, we covered a four-page story from newspaper Record where they asked 13 different journalists to analyse the player’s future.Now it’s the Mexico national team boss Tata Martino who’s talking about Jiménez. Following the rumours that have been linking the striker to Juventus, the manager said he should think calmly about the decision.“Any modification, any change, the first one that has to define it is both him and his family”, Tata Martino told TUDN (via Medio Tiempo).Embed from Getty Images“Analyse very well any possibility of change, I know that it is very tempting at times and I also say this from experience, to me in some moment I’ve had to go somewhere privileged and after six or seven years I find myself declaring that it was the worst year as a coach of my life.”“It’s not just going to the places that dazzle, but you have to be convinced that you want to do it, that a change is needed, because sometimes we have happiness where we are and it’s not necessary to change.”It’s recently been reported by the Spanish media that Wolverhampton have set a price of €100m for Jiménez’ transfer this summer. This is said to be twice what Juventus are offering, so the clubs are probably far from a deal for Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameThe Most Addictive Game of the Year 2019Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Ronaldo: ‘I’d only play Champions League’

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo admits he is driven by the “important games” and would only play “for the national team and in the Champions League” with Juventus if he could. The 34-year-old has won most of what’s on offer at club level and is motivated by the games where he can feel the “pressure”. “I’ll tell you, if it were up to me, I would only play some important games,” the Portuguese international said in an interview with France Football. “Those of the national team and in the Champions League. “It’s these kinds of games that emerge, those with something at stake, with a difficult environment, with pressure.” But he concedes that he always gives his all when he enters the pitch, whilst he doesn’t care too much about the reactions from the outside world. “You have to be a professional and perform well every day, to honour your family and the club you represent, the ones who pay you. For the rest, I do not give much importance to the reactions I get from the public,” he added.
