Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer seeks to dismiss charges, claiming emails prove ‘consensual’ relationship – SFGate

“Disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein has asked a New York judge to dismiss multiple sexual assault charges against him, according to a motion filed Friday by his attorney.In the 159-page motion, Weinstein’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, argues that the Manhattan district attorney withheld “exculpatory evidence” from a grand jury that indicted the movie mogul, who faces six charges, including rape in the first and third degrees. The motion cites “more than 400 warm, complimentary and solicitous” emails between Weinstein and an unnamed woman accusing him of raping her in 2013.According to the court filing, the emails were sent between April 2013 and February 2017, a period that followed the alleged rape.”
