How long will Weinstein's case go on?

Asked on 21-12-2018 by Rajesh Khan

Answered by NewsBytes

It is not possible to say how long the case will go on. The prosecution will try for a quick indictment to save the victims the trauma of attending the court proceedings for a long time. The defense will try to keep Weinstein out of jail and free him of all charges. We expect the case to be drawn out.
