Prosecution admits to new error in Weinstein case

Prosecution admits to new error in Weinstein caseThe prosecution has admitted to a new embarrassing error in the Harvey Weinstein case, saying a police detective told one of the disgraced Hollywood producer’s accusers to delete from her phone anything she wanted to keep private. In a letter to Weinstein’s attorney dated Tuesday, prosecutor Joan Illuzzi-Orbon acknowledged that the lead detective had made the recommendation to one of two women accusing Weinstein in the case, in which he faces charges of rape and a forced oral sex act. “This new development even further undermines the integrity of an already deeply flawed indictment of Mr Weinstein,” his lawyer Ben Brafman was quoted by a spokeswoman as saying.
