New York, June 5 (IANS) Disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein on Tuesday pleaded not guilty to two charges of rape and one of sexual assault against him, a media report said.
An unshaven, scruffy-looking Weinstein, who was wearing a coat and carelessly-knotted tie and baggy jeans that appeared to be too long, appeared in the Manhattan Criminal Court for the arraignment, reported the Daily Mail.
He was accompanied by his lawyer and a bodyguard.
A grand jury had voted on May 31 day to indict Weinstein on charges of first- and third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office said.
The charges are the same that were filed by police earlier in May when Weinstein, 66, surrendered to face arrest in a pair of alleged sex attacks in Manhattan in 2004 and 2013.
More than 80 women have publicly accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to rape.
