District Attorney for the Manhattan DA’s office said on Friday that Harvey Weinstein can get a fair trial right here in good ol’ Manhattan. There has been much to do with all the hubbub by his attorneys and it doesn’t seem like the DA has been taking too kindly to the publicity.
The DA argued that the prospective jurors will be questioned extensively about their experience in relation to the coverage in the case and their ability to avoid coverage etc. Many who have been following things say that it’s very unlikely that they would move the trial, but Weinstein’s defense team may want to seek the opportunity for a potential appeal.
Harvey Weinstein is currently facing 5 counts of rape and sexual assult and faces a potential life term if convicted. He is set to be arraigned on Monday on a new indictment.
