BREAKING: New York prosecutor drops part of s*x a*sault case against Harvey Weinstein

Manhattan’s District Attorney has dropped one of six criminal charges against Harvey Weinstein after new evidence emerged challenging the account of one of his three accusers.

During a court hearing in Manhattan Criminal Court on Thursday, Judge James Burke granted the defense request to dismiss the count related to allegations by Lucia Evans. The aspiring actor first told her story to the New Yorker last October, saying Weinstein forced her to perform oral s*x during a daytime meeting at his Tribeca office in 2004.

According to court documents made public after Thursday’s hearing, Evans is alleged to have offered conflicting accounts about her encounter with Weinstein. Prosecutors are also accused to failing to disclose to the defense a witness who could also cast doubt on Evans’ claims, among other materials.

Prosecutors did not challenge the defense motion to dismiss the Evans count. Prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon emphasized that the loss of Evans did not alter the fundamentals of the case and the prosecution’s contention that Weinstein is guilty of “predatory s*xual a*sault” involving multiple victims.

“We are moving full-steam ahead,” Illuzi-Orbon told the judge. She said the investigation into Weinstein’s actions continues as the D.A.’s office works to determine if additional charges can be brought against Weinstein.

Defense attorney Ben Brafman said he plans to challenge the work of the lead NYPD detective in the case in light of the information about Evans that came to light. He also raised the allegation of Evans having committed perjury in her testimony to the grand jury that led to Weinstein’s indictment in May. He also slammed the New Yorker for using Evans as a key source in its coverage of the tidal wave of s*xual a*sault allegations against the former film titan.

“It appears to me some of the most vocal, outspoken critics of Mr. Weinstein who have put their complaints into the media were never properly vetted,” Brafman said.

Brafman indicated that questions about Evans’ account may came to light as part of the New Yorker’s fact-checking process on bombshell exposes published last year by investigative reporter Ronan Farrow. He also took aim at the five other remaining counts against Weinstein, as alleged by former production a*sistant Mimi Haleyi and an unnamed woman accusing Weinstein of r*pe in 2013. Weinstein has steadfastly maintained that the s*xual encounters were consensual.

“We will be able to demonstrate he did not commit any of the other crimes,” Brafman said.

The judge set the next hearing in the case for Dec. 20. Defense attorneys have until Nov. 2 to file additional motions to dismiss.

Weinstein was stone-faced as he walked haltingly into the courtroom for the hearing. Dressed in a dark suit, the former showman known for his larger than life personality did not turn his eyes to the packed rows of reporters in attendance to cover the proceedings.

As he left the courtroom, Weinstein whispered to his attorney and did glance at the crowd that included the New York Times’ Jodi Kantor, who co-wrote the first damning report in October 2017 about Weinstein’s alleged history of s*xual a*saults, and famed writer Ken Auletta. Both journalists are working on books about Weinstein’s stunning downfall.

Ehh well part of the case is weak

The DA aint gonna drop a case unless its weak

the thing is I dont think he r*ped anyone.

I think abused his power and did some awful sh*t and blackballed people if they didnt fu*k him which is bad.

But anyone who participated it part of the problem as well.

If you fu*ked that sloppy dude for a role I dont want to hear your story. Because you didnt have to.

craziest part is that on some level the prosecutors knew she was full of sh*t, they didn't even try to f*ght it. make you wonder how much the rest of their case is knowingly full of sh*t.
