Life Witness in the Weinstein case: “It was disgusting” By weekster Posted on January 25, 2020 3 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Actress Annabella Sciorra (59) gave a testimony on Thursday during the second day of the substantive trial against Harvey Weinstein (67). The Sopranos actress explained in detail from the witness stand how the fallen American film producer allegedly raped her in an apartment in Manhattan in 1993, writes The New York Times. “He sat on top of me and raped me” “While I was trying to get rid of him by beating and kicking, he grabbed my hands and held them behind my head. He sat down on top of me and raped me,” Scriorra (59) told the jury. “I had no strength left in my body to fight back. I said no, no. But I couldn’t do much at the time.” She continues: “It was so disgusting that I started shaking all over my body. I had never experienced anything like it before. It seemed like a kind of attack.” The actress, who played in more than thirty films, but is also known for her role in the series The Sopranos, said that she had received “inappropriate” presents from Weinstein on several occasions. For example, she once received a package with popcorn and valium and once a box of chocolate was delivered to her home. The Sciorra case is time-barred, but the prosecutors want to tell her story to show that the former producer has been abusing for a long period of time. Sciorra has therefore been summoned as a witness. Weinstein is on trial for a total of five cases of rape and sexual abuse. These were alleged to have taken place in 2006 and 2013. In addition to the two alleged victims, three other women will be interviewed who will testify, just like Sciorra.
