The producer, who has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex and plead not guilty this morning in a New York City courtroom, purchased the nearly 5.75-acre oceanfront estate in two transactions, the first in 1994 and the second in 2000, for a total of just under $8.25 million.

Weinstein could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted of either offence.

The decision was made by the court that Weinstein will return to court on September 22 for a hearing on motions in his case.

Asked about her own alleged sexual assault at the hands of Weinstein, the actress explained, "I$3 didn't really understand the law and I didn't think I was important enough to make a big enough deal over, I just kind of tried to put it to the side and keep working and go on about my life".

Weinstein was flanked by cameras as he entered a lower Manhattan courthouse Tuesday morning alongside attorney Benjamin Brafman.

Harvey Weinstein appeared in a NY court yesterday to enter his plea after he was charged and arrested last week.

"I take issue when the District Attorney announces an indictment of Mr. Weinstein and suggests that denigrating victims in any way as inappropriate victimization again".

The two specific charges include the accusation that he raped a woman in a hotel room and that he forced another woman to perform oral sex on him in his office in 2004.

The former Hollywood producer was indicted last week on charges involving two women.

The accusations gave rise to the #MeToo movement, which has seen hundreds of women publicly accusing powerful men in business, government and entertainment of sexual harassment and abuse. She told her story in October to The New Yorker.

For Bennett Gershman, a law professor at Pace University in NY and a former federal prosecutor, Weinstein is the "worst of the worst". Prosecutors say those allegations remain under investigation. Nothing about today's proceedings changes Mr Weinstein's position.

To date, almost 90 women have come forward to accuse Weinstein of sexually harassing or assaulting them.

The New York Times had said in a report that as part of a bail package negotiated in advance, Weinstein will put up $1 million in cash and will agree to wear a monitoring device.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office is now reviewing five investigations into the 66-year-old - two brought by Beverly Hills police and three that were investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department's elite Robbery-Homicide Division.
