Life Judge threatens to revoke Weinstein’s bail By weekster Posted on January 9, 2020 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ On the second day of the rape trial against Harvey Weinstein, the judge threatened to revoke his bail and put the former film producer in jail. The reason is that, contrary to the agreements, Weinstein was caught using his mobile phone at the time the jury selection started. “Is this really the way you want to end up in jail for the rest of your life?” “Is this really the way you want to end up in jail for the rest of your life by texting and violating a court order?” Judge James Burke asked, visibly angry. He told Weinstein not to answer. Prosecutor Joan Illuzzi urged Burke to imprison Weinstein. “There is a high risk that this defendant will realize at some point that the evidence against him is overwhelming and he will try to flee,” she said. The judge finally decided not to detain Weinstein, but warned that he would not get another chance. The fallen film producer has been released on bail, but must wear an electronic ankle strap.
