Already convicted of rape and sex assault in Manhattan, Weinstein was extradited from the Wende Correctional Facility near Buffalo and flown west this month after a string of delays.

Weinstein, 69, was secretly indicted by the Los Angeles grand jury in March.

The earliest charged incident in the California case involves the alleged forcible rape of a woman at a Beverly Hills hotel between Sept. 1, 2004, and Sept. 30, 2005, according to the indictment.

Weinstein then allegedly went on to rape another woman on two separate occasions in November 2009 and November 2010, also inside Beverly Hills hotel rooms.

Prosecutors claim Weinstein sexually assaulted his next victim at a Beverly Hills hotel in May 2010 before going on to rape a fourth woman at a Los Angeles hotel on Feb. 18, 2013.


The most recent incident charged in the case is the alleged sexual assault of a fifth woman at a Beverly Hills hotel a day later on Feb. 19, 2013, prosecutors said.

Weinstein’s next scheduled court appearance is Sept. 13. He has the right to face trial within 60 days of that date.

Jackson said Friday his client is “doing great.”

“He is intimately involved in the defense of his case,” Jackson told The News after the hearing. “He’s looking forward to days like today, where little by little, the prosecution’s case is going to start faltering.”
