Lawyer: Alleged Weinstein victim would testify

NEW YORK (AP) — A lawyer for the third alleged sex crime victim in the prosecution against Harvey Weinstein says her client will testify if the case goes to trial.

Gloria Allred said outside court Monday that she doubts Weinstein’s lawyer would allow him to do the same because it would subject him to cross-examination by prosecutors.

Defense attorney Ben Brafman said during an arraignment that he expects more charges against the movie mogul. Weinstein maintains all the allegations are false and he will be vindicated.

The 66-year-old pleaded not guilty after he was brought into the courtroom while handcuffed from behind, then uncuffed for the proceeding.

A grand jury previously indicted Weinstein on charges involving two women.

The next hearing for Weinstein is scheduled for Sept. 20.
