HARVEY Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to charges of rape and sexual assault after a string of allegations were levelled at him.
But when will he go on trial, when would it take place and will it be televised?
When will Harvey Weinstein’s trial be?
In May 2018, the fallen Hollywood mogul, 66, was charged with rape, sexual abuse, a criminal sex act and sexual misconduct after cops accused him of attacked two women.
He paid £1million to walk free on bail – but will still have to face the charges.
On June 5, 2018 Weinstein appeared at New York Supreme Court to plead not guilty to charges of rape and sexual assault.
A statement from the Manhattan District Attorney said: “A grand jury has voted to indict Harvey Weinstein on charges of rape in the first and third Degrees, and Criminal Sexual Act in the first degree.
“This indictment brings the defendant another step closer to accountability for the crimes of violence with which he is now charged.
“Our office will try this case not in the press, but in the courtroom where it belongs.”
His trial was set to begin on June 3, 2019, but has been postponed until September 9.
A New York City judge announced the delay on April 26 following a closed-door hearing that focused on trial strategy and potential witnesses.
Prosecutors want Judge James Burke to allow some of Weinstein’s dozens of other accusers to testify in an attempt to show he has a history of violating women.
Weinstein denies all allegations of wrongdoing.
