The sexual predator was whisked in the morning from the upstate Wende Correctional Facility in Erie County — where he had been serving a 23-year sentence for rape and sexual assault after his conviction in Manhattan in February 2020.
Weinstein, dressed in a white shirt and khaki pants, was taken out of the prison in a wheelchair, said a source familiar with the situation. The 69-year-old con’s walker was brought along for the journey, too.
“This morning at approximately 9:25 custody of Mr. Harvey Weinstein was handed over to the appropriate officials for transport to the state of California per a court order,’’ said a spokesman for the New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision in an e-mail.
The fallen movie mogul faces 11 counts of rape, sexual battery and other charges involving five women in Los Angeles — raps that could land him another 140 years to life behind bars if convicted.
