Annabella Sciorra testifies that Weinstein raped her

Sopranos actress Annabella Sciorra took the stand in once-powerful Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein’s sex crimes trial, and described a night in the winter of 1993-1994 when she said he raped her.

Sciorra said Weinstein offered to drop her off at her New York City apartment after a dinner with a group at an Irish restaurant. She said she went home and was preparing for bed when someone knocked on her door. “(Weinstein) was there and pushed the door open,” she said, adding, “Then he started to unbutton his shirt, and then I realized that in his head, he wanted to have sex, and I didn’t want to.”

She said she felt “overpowered,” and Weinstein raped her. Weinstein, 67, faces charges including rape and sexual assault, but he hasn’t been charged in connection with Sciorra’s allegation because the statute of limitations ran out.

He says all of his encounters with his accusers were consensual.
