Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein on Tuesday pleaded not guilty in a New York courtroom to rape and sexual assault charges related to crimes allegedly committed against two women.
The 66-year-old producer, whose career imploded in a blaze of accusations from dozens of women that sparked a nationwide reckoning about sexual misconduct, could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
