Netease Entertainment reported on January 7 that recently, the Supreme Court of New York State will hear the sexual assault case of Harvey Weinstein, a 67 year old gold medal producer, who was accused of sexual assault by nearly 90 women in 2017, accusing him of approaching the victims through power and committing violence against them. The incident also triggered a campaign against sexual harassment, which led to the downfall of dozens of influential men in Hollywood.
On July 7, the court held a pre-trial meeting and began to select a jury. The trial is expected to last for six weeks. If convicted, Weinstein will face life imprisonment. But Weinstein denied all the charges and stressed that any sexual experience he had occurred with the consent of the other party.
