NEW YORK  — Harvey Weinstein, the former movie mogul whose 2020 rape conviction was recently nullified by an appeals court, has been hospitalized in New York City for a battery of tests, according to his lawyer on Saturday.


Attorney Arthur Aidala stated that Weinstein was admitted to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan after his return to the city from jail on Friday. Aidala described Weinstein's condition as requiring significant medical attention, citing a range of health issues.


“They examined him and sent him to Bellevue. It seems like he needs a lot of help, physically. He’s got a lot of problems. He’s getting all kinds of tests. He’s somewhat of a train wreck health-wise,” Aidala commented.


The hospital has not yet responded to requests for comment.


Weinstein had been incarcerated at the Mohawk Correctional Facility, approximately 100 miles northwest of Albany, until the New York Court of Appeals overturned his conviction on Thursday. The court ruled that the trial judge had allowed the jury to consider evidence not directly related to the charges, leading to the nullification of his 23-year prison sentence and a retrial order.


Frank Dwyer, a spokesperson for the New York City Department of Correction, confirmed that Weinstein remains in custody at Bellevue Hospital. Thomas Mailey, representing the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, stated that Weinstein was transferred to the city's Department of Correction following the appeals ruling.


Prosecutors have expressed their intention to retry Weinstein on charges of forcibly performing oral sex on a production assistant in 2006 and raping an aspiring actor in 2013.


Weinstein, who was also convicted of rape in Los Angeles in 2022 and sentenced to 16 years in prison, has been plagued by various health problems including cardiac issues, diabetes, sleep apnea, and eye ailments.


According to Aidala, Weinstein's physical condition prompted his swift transfer to Bellevue Hospital. Aidala also emphasized Weinstein's mental acuity, describing him as mentally sharp.


Aidala alleged that Weinstein was mistreated during his transfer, stating that he was denied water, food, and bathroom breaks. However, Mailey declined to comment on Aidala's claims.


Weinstein's lawyer plans to advocate for a retrial after Labor Day, a sentiment he intends to convey during Weinstein's court appearance in Manhattan scheduled for Wednesday.
