Harvey Weinstein threatened with jail by court judge after being caught on his mobile phone during rape trial
” . . . the judge was not impressed when he spotted the defendant using his mobile during proceedings.
Judge James Burke barked: “Mr Weinstein, is this really the way you want to end up in jail – by texting and violating a court order?”
The fuming judge then cut off Weinstein before he could answer.
Weinstein is charged with raping a woman in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and forcibly performing a sex act on another woman in the city in 2006.
If convicted he faces the possibility of life in prison.”
