For two weeks, a jury in NYC has heard harrowing details of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults. Here are some of the most disturbing.

The former Hollywood producer faces life in prison if convicted of rape and predatory sexual assault, allegations Weinstein has repeatedly denied. He claims that any sexual encounters were consensual.

“He has extreme scarring that I didn’t know if maybe he was a burn victim. He does not have testicles, and it appears like he has a vagina.”Mann and Weinstein occasionally had consensual sexual encounters. She claims he also raped her twice. Weinstein is only charged with one of the alleged sex attacks.Model Lauren Marie Young echoed Mann’s description in her own testimony, during which she alleged the former movie titan sexually assaulted her in a Beverly Hills hotel while he masturbated.

Mann also told the Manhattan jury that the last sexual encounter she remembers having with Weinstein occurred“He needed to be consoled for his grief, and he wanted to talk to me because I understood grief,” said Mann, whose father died a year earlier. “I stood there in shock … laughing … shaking my head and I went to go to the door to approach it.” Young said the disgraced movie mogul then “stepped in front of me”.

“I’m saying, ‘no, no, no’ and he’s carrying on with normal conversation – ‘This is what all the actresses do to make it,’” Young testified. The pair, who had first met in 2004, were at Weinstein’s New York apartment when she alleged that he orally sexually assaulted her.
