Harvey Weinstein Extradited to California Over New Abuse Case

Harvey Weinstein has been extradited to the US state of California for a new rape and sexual abuse trial. The fallen Hollywood film producer had already been sentenced to 23 years in New York state for similar offences.

 

The lawyers of the once-powerful 69-year-old Weinstein had tried to prevent the extradition. Instead, they thought that the film producer should stay in New York because he would have problems with his health.

A judge brushed that argument off the table.

The film producer is accused of sexual misconduct in California by five women. Weinstein, who denies everything, faces a total sentence of 140 years. He has been incarcerated in New York since 2020 for sexually assaulting and raping two women.
