Disgraced Harvey Weinstein’s Extradition to Los Angeles Has Been Delayed Amid Coronavirus

Vile Harvey Weinstein  is coronavirus-free,  but virus-related delays in the legal system are keeping him from going to Los Angeles for his California sexual assault trial.

“The virus has delayed the processing of the extradition paperwork,” the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a statement Tuesday. “There is no time estimate on when he will appear in a Los Angeles courtroom.”

L.A. prosecutors had said on March 23 that their office “initiated its request to New York for the temporary custody of defendant Weinstein … to bring him to Los Angeles County to face rape and sexual-assault charges.”

He is currently in prison in New York State.
