Harvey Weinstein Pleads Not Guilty to Rape Charges

Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to felony rape and criminal sex act charges. The disgraced movie mogul appeared before Justice James M. Burke at the state Supreme Court in New York City. Weinstein answered a series of yes-no questions about his rights before entering his plea. The charges involve former actress Lucia Evans and a second woman who has not been publicly identified. Weinstein was first accused of decades of sexual harassment in damning exposés published by The New York Times and The New Yorker.
