Judge drops 4 of 11 sexual assault charges against Harvey Weinstein in Los Angeles trial – Orange County Register

BY ANDREW DALTON

LOS ANGELES — The judge in Harvey Weinstein’s Los Angeles trial on Tuesday dropped four of the 11 sexual assault charges against the film mogul after prosecutors said they would drop charges against one of his accusers.

Superior Court Judge Lisa Lench dismissed two counts of violent rape and two counts of violent oral copulation against 70-year-old Weinstein.

The move has been likely since the trial’s opening statements three weeks ago, when prosecutors only mentioned four women accused of assault by Weinstein during opening statements and omitted the accuser, identified in an indictment as Jane Doe #5.

Prosecutors initially withheld the charges, leaving open the possibility that the woman would testify while Weinstein’s defense had sought a final decision on the matter.
