Harvey Weinstein to be extradited to California to stand trial on sexual assault charges

New York judge rules that California authorities can take Harvey Weinstein back to Los Angeles to stand trail on five counts of sexual assault.

, a New York judge ruled Tuesday.Weinstein, 69, and his legal team have spent months fighting Los Angeles County prosecutors’ attempts to bring the disgraced Hollywood titan to Southern California. But on Tuesday, Erie County Court Judge Kenneth Case ruled L.A. County authorities could claim custody of Weinstein immediately, setting the stage for a second trial focused on the mogul’s alleged pattern of sexually abusing actresses and models he held sway over in Hollywood.

Case knocked down a motion to block the mogul’s extradition that was largely based around claims that the L.A. County district attorney’s office had filed erroneous paperwork in seeking to claim custody of him. While that argument led to a delay in the proceedings during a previous extradition hearing, it ultimately fell flat Tuesday.

Erie County prosecutors said they had been in contact with L.A. County authorities, and it is unlikely they will seek to transport Weinstein to California until mid-July.Advertisementsentenced to 23 years in New York state prison Read more: Los Angeles Times »
