Harvey Weinstein, 69, told a Los Angeles court he was not guilty of raping and sexually assaulting five women, the state's attorney said.
Recall, one of the most powerful people in Hollywood is accused of raping two women in hotels in Beverly Hills and of attacking three other women in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles area.
More than 80 women have filed charges against Weinstein for sexual assaults that have occurred over the past decades, but only a few cases have ended up in court.
Weinstein is charged with rape, sexual penetration by force, and if convicted, he could face up to life in prison. This is the first time he has appeared at a trial in Los Angeles, where charges were filed against him for sexually assaulting five women between 2004 and 2013.
Weinstein came to the trial in a wheelchair in a brown prison uniform and was brought to Los Angeles from New York where he is already serving a 23-year prison sentence for other cases of rape and other sexual assaults.
