Harvey Weinstein is reportedly going blind and has lost several teeth in prison, according to his lawyer.
The disgraced movie mogul appeared virtually in an upstate New York court to fight extradition to Los Angeles, where he faces rape and sexual assault charges, according to the Independent.
Weinstein’s lawyer Norman Effman said his client did not want to be extradited yet due to his health issues needing medical attention. He is “scheduled for some dental procedures to save his teeth – he’s lost, I believe four at this point,” Effman said.
Judge Kenneth Case granted Weinstein one week to file a motion to challenge the extradition, which he will rule on come 30 April.
Weinstein was found guilty in February 2020 of third-degree rape and of a criminal sexual act. He was sentenced the following month to 23 years in prison.
Weinstein’s legal team signalled its intention to appeal shortly after the verdict became known in February. Weinstein’s attorney Donna Rotunno told the press at the time that his legal team would “absolutely be appealing”, adding that “the fight is not over”.
