Despite attempts from Harvey Weinstein‘s lawyers to keep him from having to face more sexual assault charges in Los Angeles on the grounds that he’s in poor health and going blind, the disgraced movie mogul was flown from the Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison near Buffalo, N.Y., to the Twin Towers jail in downtown L.A. on Tuesday.
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.
