Uncle Harvey sent Sopranos actress a box of chocolate penises

Harvey Weinstein sent Sopranos actress a box of chocolate penises before he ‘raped’ her as court hears she said ‘hope he has a job for me’ when she heard he wanted her number just two months before she revealed the assault to Ronan Farrow

  • Sciorra messaged her friend in August 2017 saying she was ‘more broke than I ever imagined, I haven’t worked in years and I have been reaching out to friends’; She added: ‘I am hoping Harvey has a job for me’
  • In October 2017, she spoke with to Farrow at the New Yorker about her alleged rape at the hands of Weinstein
  • In an emotional testimony Sciorra, 59, described how Weinstein, 67, ‘overpowered’ her in the early 1990s
  • She told jurors she ‘punched and kicked’ out but ‘couldn’t fight anymore because he had my hands locked’
  • The actress said Weinstein told her he had ‘perfect timing’ after ejaculating on her nightgown 
  • ‘I didn’t have very much fight left inside me at this point’, a visibly distressed Sciorra told the court 
  • Weinstein, 67, has pleaded not guilty to charges of assaulting two women, Mimi Haleyi and Jessica Mann
  • Sciorra’s rape allegation from the early 1990s is too old to be charged as a separate crime, but prosecutors hope it will show that Weinstein was a repeat sexual predator –  a charge that could put him in prison for life
  • Her testimony sets up the first of several face-to-face confrontations between Weinstein and his accusers 
  • Weinstein hobbled into court Thursday without the aid of his walker and supported by his legal team
