Harvey Weinstein Seeks Dismissal Of Indictment Due To Emails Between Him And Accuser

In another email from the same unnamed accuser to Weinstein on July 10, 2014 she writes, “There is no one else I would enjoy catching up with that understands me quite like you. I don’t get off work usually till after 7 and coming from (redacted). I know I will be hungry, what is your timing? Do you have time for dinner?”
The same unnamed accuser sent an email to Weinstein on July 26, 2014, writing, “I’m at work. Just had u cross my mind and thought u would send a hello. I am well.”
“Love to cross your mind it’s my favorite exercise,” Weinstein responds, according to the filings.
When contacted by CNN, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office declined to comment on Friday’s motion for dismissal.
Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to six felony sex crimes — two counts of predatory sexual assault, two counts of rape, one first-degree criminal sex act charge and one criminal sex act.
The charges stem from allegations from three women, according to court documents.

Weinstein has denied all allegations of “nonconsensual sexual activity,” and he’s remained free after posting $1 million cash bail.
“Under the circumstances, he’s holding up reasonably well. No one can be happy to be in the position that he is in,” Brafman said in June outside of the courthouse.
“As terrible a crime as rape is, it is equally reprehensible to be falsely accused of rape, and since Mr. Weinstein has denied these allegations, that’s where we are.”
The charges against Weinstein came nine months after The New Yorker and The New York Times published accounts from several women accusing him of various forms of sexual misconduct.
