(WLNS) — Lawyers for Harvey Weinstein filed an appeal to overturn a conviction.
Weinstein was convicted last year on third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act charges.
Weinstein’s attorneys argue their client did not receive a fair trial.
They also contend the judge in the trial did not adhere to commonly accepted principles of New York Law.
Weinstein is currently serving a 23-year sentence for the conviction at Wende Correctional Facility in upstate New York.
