Harvey Weinstein jury returns today for day 5 of deliberations. A note on Friday suggested they think they might be deadlocked on the top charges.

Important to note that they can’t convict him of anything based on Sciorra alone because her allegation is so old. It can only be an aggravating factor in tandem with the more recent claims involving two other women.

The Weinstein jury appears to be focusing on Annabella Sciorra, who said Weinstein raped her in the early 90s, as they head into day 4 of deliberations. That allegation is part of the top count of predatory sexual assault. https://t.co/kaXIjOlD7e
