A second woman has taken the stand in the Los Angeles trial of disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, as says he assaulted her in 2003.
Weinstein assaulted me, witness tells
A dancer in a film produced by Harvey Weinstein has testifiedthat she was “freaked out” after meeting the movie mogul on the Puerto Rican set.
But the presence and reassurance of his assistant convinced her it was OK to go with him to his hotel, where she was later sexually assaulted.
The woman, who went by her first name and last initial Ashley M at the Los Angeles trial where Weinstein is charged with rape and sexual assault, on Thursday said she was a 22-year-old in 2003 when she was acting as a dancing double for one of the stars of Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, a film produced by Weinstein’s company Miramax.
She said Weinstein’s assistant at the time, Bonnie Hung, told her that she would remain with the two of them the entire time and that he just wanted to talk about future projects.
