Weinstein appeared in court Wednesday morning, handcuffed and in a wheelchair. He remained silent as his lawyer entered a “not guilty” plea on his behalf.

Los Angeles prosecutors now have 120 days to bring Weinstein to trial.

    You know the old saying, if you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime.
    All of these women that you traumatized over the years deserve their justice ten times more than you deserve mercy

    Cosby got off scott free claiming poor health & so will this piece of lizzard dung. Big monied men can pay for big lawyers — they all get off. Look at OJ Simpson & everybody in the world knew he did it — including the lawyers & judges. Sadly, the justice system is about nothing but big money.
