Deliberating a 2nd day, Weinstein jury revisits ’06 account
By MICHAEL R. SISAK and TOM HAYS
NEW YORK (AP) – Jurors are now in their second day of deliberations in a rape trial that could send Harvey Weinstein to prison for the rest of his life.
The panel of seven men and five women had lots of questions Tuesday as they started weighing charges in the closely watched #MeToo case.
The 67-year-old Weinstein is charged with raping a woman in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on another woman, TV and film production assistant Mimi Haleyi, in 2006.
Weinstein’s lawyers contend the acts were consensual.
The jury has asked multiple questions since getting the case Tuesday.
Jurors asked a question Wednesday about Haleyi’s allegations and asked to examine emails in evidence between her and Weinstein.
