Gloria Allred reps latest witness in Weinstein case [audio]

Prosecutors announced they would seek a fresh indictment to allow actress Annabella Sciorra (SHE-or-ah) to testify at Harvey Weinstein’s trial. Attorney Gloria Allred told John and Jillian on KABC’s Morning Drive Show she is representing Sciorra.

“She’s done what anyone who has information that is relevant to the prosecution of Mr. Weinstein, or any prosecution should do, she provided that information to law enforcement. And as a result, she’s been asked by prosecution to testify in this criminal case. And I commend her for her willingness to take the stand and answer questions under oath.”

Weinstein’s attorneys issued a statement late last week saying in part, “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. This action by the prosecutor bespeaks the desperation that has engulfed their case.”

Allred dismisses this argument.

“What is it they are afraid of? They must think that my client Annabella’s testimony could be damaging to them.”
