Harvey Weinstein will be arraigned Monday on a new indictment in his sex assault case — just three weeks before his trial is set to begin.
The disgraced movie mogul was indicted Thursday on revised charges meant to fix a technical problem with the existing indictment, prosecutors said.
It does not add additional charges, nor will it delay the Sept. 9 trial, they added.
The case was re-presented to a grand jury to allow “Sopranos” actress Annabella Sciorra to testify against the 67-year-old producer.
Sciorra’s testimony could bolster two counts of predatory sexual assault Weinstein faces — serious charges that carry a maximum life sentence.
She claims Weinstein raped her inside her Manhattan apartment after she starred in a movie he produced in 1993.
Prosecutors were barred from bringing charges in Sciorra’s case because her allegation dates back several years before a change in law that removed the statute of limitations in rape cases.
The predatory sexual assault charge requires prosecutors to prove that Weinstein committed a serious sex crime against at least two women.
Weinstein is accused of raping a woman in 2013 and performing a forcible sex act on another woman in 2006. He has pleaded not guilty.
Lawyers for the fallen filmmaker slammed new indictment, saying it shows that prosecutors’ case is weak.
“There has been no case in recent memory where a district attorney has gone back to the grand jury on two separate occasions to re-present a case before that body in the hopes of obtaining an indictment that can withstand the scrutiny of a trial jury,” the lawyers, Arthur Aidala and Donna Rotunno, said in a statement.
“This action by the prosecutor bespeaks the desperation that has engulfed their case. We have reached the point where one must be concerned that these desperate measures indicate more of a focus on obtaining a conviction at all costs than on seeking justice.”
