NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the arraignment for Harvey Weinstein on charges that he committed a sex crime against a third woman (all times local):

10:35 a.m.

A lawyer for the third alleged sex crime victim in the prosecution against Harvey Weinstein says her client will testify if the case goes to trial.

Gloria Allred said outside court Monday that she doubts Weinstein's lawyer would allow him to do the same because it would subject him to cross-examination by prosecutors.

Defense attorney Ben Brafman said during an arraignment that he expects more charges against the movie mogul. Weinstein maintains all the allegations are false and he will be vindicated.

The 66-year-old pleaded not guilty after he was brought into the courtroom while handcuffed from behind, then uncuffed for the proceeding.

A grand jury previously indicted Weinstein on charges involving two women.

The next hearing for Weinstein is scheduled for Sept. 20.

Weinstein pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Monday in Manhattan.

He was brought into the Manhattan courtroom while handcuffed from behind, then uncuffed for the proceeding.

The new charges include two counts of predatory sexual assault, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison upon conviction.
