Harvey Weinstein to publish 40 emails from rape accuser in motion to dismiss charges

Weinstein’s lawyers are filing a motion to dismiss a rape charge (Picture: AP) Harvey Weinstein has been granted permission to publish 40 emails from an anonymous rape accuser in a motion to dismiss the criminal charges against him. The shamed producer has been indicted on sex crime charges based on the allegations of three women. He faces up to life in prison if convicted. Now, his attorneys have been given permission by a judge to publish emails from one of Weinstein’s accusers, which they claim prove that the producer had a consensual relationship with the woman. Judge Mary Walrath allowed the lawyers to use the emails in their motion, provided that the alleged victim’s name is not used. Benjamin Brafman, Weinstein’s attorney, argues that the emails show that the woman had a ‘friendly, long-term relationship’ with Weinstein for four years after the alleged rape in 2013.
