Weinstein attorney: He's a sinner, but not 'a rapist'

NEW YORK — An attorney for Harvey Weinstein says her client is not without sin — but he's also not "a rapist."

Donna Rotunno, speaking on "CBS This Morning," said on Tuesday that she feels the evidence will exonerate the movie mogul of any criminal wrongdoing.

Weinstein is scheduled to go to trial in January on charges alleging he raped an unidentified woman in his Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and performed a forcible sex act on a different woman in 2006.

He denies all accusations of non-consensual sex.
