A New York judge, on Thursday morning, upheld the remaining criminal charges levelled against Hollywood movie producer, Harvey Weinstein, after he made a request through his attorneys that they should be dropped.
The decision by Justice James Burke of the state Supreme Court makes way for prosecutors to try Weinstein, who faces five counts, including rape.
The disgraced mega-producer who has been accused of numerous sex offences was charged with one count of first-degree rape, one count of third-degree rape, one count of criminal sexual act in the first degree. These charges are for two incidents — one in 2013 and another in 2004.
