Numerous reports stated that Harvey Weinstein, a movie producer, had been accused of rape, sexual misconduct, and physical molestation by dozens of women in 2017. The statements claimed that Weinstein committed his abhorrent activities over at least 30 years.
In the end, Weinstein was accused of these behaviors by more than 80 women working in the film industry. The long-delayed West Coast sex crimes trial for Harvey Weinstein has recently started the jury selection process.
The sources have established that California’s First Partner will be one of the alleged victims who testify. The next ten weeks will see Jennifer Siebel Newsom testify in front of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lisa Lench. She has been given the alias Jane Doe #4 in court documents.
Jennifer Siebel Newsom Is Scheduled To Testify Against Harvey
Like countless other women, Jennifer Seibel was traumatized by Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment during a bogus work event that ended up being a ruse.
In a statement to Deadline this morning, Siebel Newsom said that she had hired Elizabeth Fegan as her legal counsel. As part of her life’s efforts to better women’s lives, Siebel plans to speak during his trial to help survivors receive some justice.
Scott, a founder, and chairman who previously represented other Weinstein victims in a now-resolved civil litigation will also be present at the trial in conjunction with Fegan. The media are reportedly clamoring for more information, but Siebel has asked through her attorney to avoid being questioned outside of court.
In a 2017 piece, Siebel Newsom—a longtime documentary filmmaker and once an actress before she married the former mayor of San Francisco Gavin Newsom—described being harassed and assaulted by Pulp Fiction producer Weinstein.
In a thorough explanation, Siebel said that because she was new to the field, she was unsure how to respond to his relentless approaches.
At the Toronto Film Festival, there were prolonged working requests with a buddy and a later invitation to talk with him concerning a role in The Peninsula Hotel. Staff members entered, then abruptly vanished as if on cue, leaving Siebel alone with this powerful and menacing Hollywood legend.
She revealed these details in the Huffington Post shortly after the New York Times published its illuminating exposé of the allegations of sexual abuse against Weinstein.
Weinstein was charged with decades-long allegations of raping, assaulting, and harassing actresses and other female employees in the entertainment business.
Heaps Of Charges Against Harvey Weinstein
Documents filed in court claim that between September 2004 and September 2005, Weinstein allegedly committed a forceful rape of Jennifer Siebel in Los Angeles County. It was impossible to contact Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers for a remark. Siebel Newsom’s involvement in the Weinstein LA trial was initially reported by the La Times.
Four counts of rape, four counts of involuntary forcible sodomy, one act of sexual penetration by use of force, one charge of indecent assault by restraint, and one case of sexual battery are among the charges regarding Weinstein that were brought by a grand jury.
These charges relate to reported incidents of five women that occurred in Los Angeles County between 2004 and 2013. Weinstein, 70, was found guilty of various sex crimes in March 2020 and was sentenced to 23 years in jail; if proven guilty again in Los Angeles, he could receive a 140-year sentence.
In March 2020, a Manhattan jury sentenced Weinstein, then 70, to 23 years in jail for various sex crimes; if found guilty in L.A., he could receive a 140-year sentence.
Weinstein won’t be entering the court daily, surrounded by media members as he did during the Manhattan trial.
Since being deported in the summer of 2021 from a state jail outside of Buffalo, Weinstein has been detained for more than a year in DTLA’s Twin Towers Correctional Facility. So instead, Weinstein will enter through the back door every morning, get dressed, and enter the tightly controlled courtroom immediately.
