Harvey Weinstein’s lawyer asked if the disgraced mogul could wear bras during his trial in Los Angeles because his pants keep falling off.

Lawyers representing Harvey Weinstein in his Los Angeles trial on felony rape charges have asked a judge to allow the former mogul to exercise bras, arguing that their client needed some help keeping his pants in the courtroom.

The wrong moment happened on Wednesday. During a break between witnesses, Weinstein’s attorney Mark Werksman asked Judge Lisa Lynch to allow Weinstein to wear suspenders in court because his pants keep falling off.

Lynch obligated, according to Trial Pool reports, saying she would be allowed to proceed if the request complied with Los Angeles Police Department rules. LASD did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Weinstein pleaded not guilty to 11 counts of sexual assault in Los Angeles court on July 21, 2021, and his current trial addresses allegations from five women, which he has denied.

On Wednesday, jurors heard witnesses including a former aide to Weinstein testify when they met and interacted with Jane Doe 2, who had testified about Weinstein’s assault at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2013.

On Monday, Weinstein’s attorney Alan Jackson took off his jacket at a courtroom demonstration, telling the accused sitting in front of him that he “would go no further.” Several defendants testified about the fear they felt during the incidents with Weinstein, with several defendants saying Weinstein forcefully undressed and exposed himself.

Before the trial, Weinstein’s lawyers said their client’s health was deteriorating in the county jail. Last year, Weinstein’s lawyers asked him to undergo eye and dental surgery, and during jury selection, his legal team said they were concerned about his death.

Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison in New York after a New York jury in 2020 found him guilty of third-degree rape and forced sexual assault of two women, and he could face an additional 135 years in prison if convicted in Los Angeles.
