Dozens of jury was rejected in court case against Weinstein

2 min read

A court in New York on Wednesday rejected dozens of potential jury members in the rape case against former American film producer Harvey Weinstein. A total of 50 of the 120 potential jury members who were summoned on the second day of the jury selection were rejected, most after them said they could not be impartial in the matter.

Among them were two women who claimed to have been assaulted in the past and someone who said a good friend had met with the film producer. “I have read every article about the case and it will be very difficult (to be impartial) for someone who has been assaulted several times,” a woman said.

Many other candidate jury members simply said that they could not be honest without giving a reason. The lawsuit started with the selection of the jury, which probably takes two weeks.

Process can take two months

Weinstein (67) says he is innocent of the charges of sexual abuse of two women in New York. He may receive a life sentence if he is found guilty.

The trial against the fallen film producer started on Monday and can take two months.
