Harvey Weinstein New York trial: After almost four weeks of evidence and 44 witnesses, here are the main allegations ahead of defence testimony

Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein is on trial in Los Angeles while already serving a 23-year sentence in New York. While the LA trial was widely viewed as symbolic, it assumed greater significance after the producer was granted permission to appeal his New York convictions.

Currently two years into a 23-year sentence for previous convictions on rape and sexual assault charges in New York, Weinstein has been held in jail throughout the latest trial.

The LA trial was widely viewed as symbolic - but it has assumed greater significance in light of the producer being granted permission to appeal against his New York convictions.

The 70-year-old is charged with crimes against four of the witnesses who have testified. Three of the women - a model, a model/actress, and a massage therapist - have given evidence anonymously. Filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the wife of California governor Gavin Newsom, has waived her right to anonymity.

Four other women who are not involved with the charges have also told the court that Weinstein sexually assaulted them.

Initially facing 11 charges, Weinstein is now facing seven - and has pleaded not guilty to all, with his solicitors saying many of the encounters were consensual - after four were dropped when it emerged that an accuser known as Jane Doe #5 would not be appearing to testify.

The trial is breaking for just over a week around America's Thanksgiving holiday before returning to hear from defence witnesses at the end of November. Here are the main allegations heard during the prosecution.
