It was an experiment with testicles.
Harvey Weinstein and his “mutilated” genitalia have been examined for weeks during his rape trial in Los Angeles – and the jury is deciding whether the resounding testimonies about the perverted genitals are enough to convict the fallen Hollywood giant a second time.
In his opening statement, Deputy District Attorney Paul Thompson said each of the victims — four Jane related to felony charges and four witnesses to “previous misdeeds” — wouldn’t be able to “completely” describe Weinstein’s anatomy, but they would all notice “unique things” about the genitalia. Lowenstein.
“What I am referring to is the outcome of the surgery the defendant had in 1999,” Thompson told the jury as the 70-year-old Weinstein shook his head. “Because of an infection, his testicles had already been taken from his scrotum and placed in his inner thighs.”
In one of the most shocking testimonies during the five-week trial, Jennifer Seibel Newsom — the wife of California Governor Gavin Newsom — testified that Weinstein used his “fish-like” penis to rape her in 2005 at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. .
When asked by Deputy Attorney General Marilyn Martinez to describe Weinstein’s physique, Sibel Newsom said: “Lots of bruises and marks and yellow-green, lots of stretch marks on his stomach, not at all physically fit. He looked uncircumcised and a strange, though fish-like, penis.” , something deformed in the testicles…a lot of skin, a lot of skin in there.”
Jurors were shown photographs of Weinstein’s mutilated genitalia, which they viewed in a private room in Los Angeles Superior Court. During his 2020 trial in New York, it was revealed that Weinstein had suffered scarring and changes to his genitals from surgery to treat Fournier’s gangrene.
One of the other victims testified that she was assaulted in 2013 and that Weinstein – who is already serving a 23-year prison sentence for rape and sexual assault in New York – had “testicle problems”. She said his scrotum has “part of it”.
Several women said that as soon as Weinstein put them alone in a hotel room, he would undress or take a shower, and later appear naked and masturbate.
One of the witnesses, actress Natasia Malthe, said Weinstein raped her in a hotel room around the time of the 2008 British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards.
Malth said that when Weinstein penetrated her vagina with his penis, she saw a huge hole in his stomach.
“It didn’t last long because I didn’t get any response because I just played dead,” Maleth testified. “He got down from me and got rid of himself. Get down in his hand.”
Jane Doe 2 testified that she was sexually assaulted in February 2013 at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. She said the Weinsteins looked like they had been “cut up and sewn back together”.
She testified, “I haven’t really seen a plump sack, I just seen a literal penis.” “I was disgusted. I have never seen such a big man naked.”
Defense attorney Alan Jackson urged jurors not to get sucked into the alleged “lies,” insisting that two of the defendants — Jane Doe 1 and 2 — completely fabricated their alleged sexual encounters.
He said Jane Doe 3, a masseuse, and Jane Doe 4, Sibel Newsom, had “sexual relations” with Weinstein and maintained relationships with the former producer for years.
He said Jane Do 1, who alleged Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on her, flipped several times in her testimony. He noted that Jane Do1 told investigators and prosecutors in a 2017 interview, “He put my face in his testicles.”
About a year later during her grand jury testimony, Jackson said, the same accuser had suddenly deleted Weinstein’s testicles from her account.
“I figured something was wrong with that testimony,” Jackson told the jury during his closing argument Thursday. “He never had testicles.”
Weinstein faces two counts of forcible rape and five counts of sexual assault and could be sentenced to more than 100 years in prison if convicted on all counts. The jury began deliberations on Friday afternoon.
