NEW YORK (AP) — A key accuser at Harvey Weinstein's rape trial returned Tuesday to the witness stand, a day after she became so upset while being questioned by the former movie mogul's lawyers that the judge suspended her cross examination.
Subdued and somber in her third day testifying about her complex relationship with Weinstein, the woman stared at jurors and told them: "I want the jury to know that he is my rapist."
The woman is expected to be on the stand much of the day as Weinstein's lawyers continue a painstaking review of her emails and other communications. They say the 34-year-old former actress was a manipulator who gritted her way through sexual encounters with Weinstein because she enjoyed the perks of knowing him.
