WASHINGTON: US actress Annabella Sciorra has accused film producer Harvey Weinstein of raping her at her home 25 years ago.
Sciorra, best known for her role in The Sopranos, said Weinstein forced himself into her apartment and attacked her.
“I was trying to get him off me,” Ms Sciorra said to the New York jury. “I was punching him, kicking him.”
However, the 67-year-old denies all charges, which include rape and sexual assault.
If convicted, he could face life behind bars, according to media reports.
