Weinstein appeared in a Manhattan court Friday for a bail hearing. Prosecutors sought to have his bail increased to $5 million from its current $1 million, arguing he violated his terms by allegedly tampering with an ankle monitor. Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to allegations of rape and sexual assault. He’s scheduled for a follow-up hearing on Wednesday.
“The segment displayed to a national audience the same dismissive, manipulative tactics Harvey implemented to silence the voices of so many women for decades and helped create an environment that allowed him to leverage his power to strategically dismantle their reputations and careers.
“We believe the evidence against Harvey presented in the trial next month will be a moment of reckoning and he will be held accountable for his crimes. We continue to stand together to support those who have been victimized, and empower others to speak their truth.”
