Prosecuting Attorney: Harvey Weinstein a ‘Degenerate Rapist’ and ‘Predator’

A prosecutor in the Harvey Weinstein case said he is a "degenerate rapist and predator."

"Harvey Weinstein was a 'predator' with unmistakable patterns who used his Hollywood power to lure women into meetings, sexually assault them and escape the consequences," the prosecutor said in closing arguments at the former movie mogul’s Los Angeles trial.

"Deputy District Attorney Marlene Martinez said the accusers who testified during the trial entered Weinstein’s hotel suites or let him into their hotel rooms with no idea what awaited them," according to Breitbart.

"Who would suspect that such an entertainment industry titan would be a degenerate rapist?" Martinez said.

"She constantly emphasized the similarity of the testimony of the four women Weinstein is charged with raping or sexually assaulting and the four other accusers who testified to show his propensity for such acts," reported Breitbart.

"These are eight women who do not know each other," Martinez said, showing the jury images of all of them. "They all describe the same conduct by the same man."

"Weinstein’s attorneys have said, and are likely to argue in their own closing Thursday, that two of the women had consensual sex for career advancement with the movie producer. His attorneys have said the encounters with the other two women didn’t happen at all," reports Breitbart.
