Olden, NY (AP) — New York prison officials handed over convicted film producer Harvey Weinstein to transfer to California on suspicion of sexual assault.
The New York State Corrections and Community Supervisory Authority said the transfer took place around 9:25 am on Tuesday.
The details of Weinstein’s journey are not immediately available.
A New York judge denied June’s request by Weinstein’s lawyer to keep him in a state prison near Buffalo for medical reasons until the selection of a jury in Los Angeles began.
Weinstein was convicted of sexual activity and three rapes in New York City last year. He faces 11 similar counts in California.
