The jury in Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault trial in New York said on Friday they were deadlocked on the most serious criminal charges and suggested they were unanimous on the others leveled against the former Hollywood mogul.

Weinstein is accused of sexually assaulting former production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and raping Jessica Mann, an aspiring actress, in 2013.

More than 80 women, since 2017, have accused the 67 year old of sexual misconduct, fueling the #MeToo movement.
