New York (dpa) - In the rape trial against former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, the prosecution and defense delivered a tough exchange of blows in their opening speeches. After the public prosecutor described the 67-year-old as "sex offender and rapist" at the start of the sensational trial, Weinstein's team attacked the credibility of the witnesses. Her statements are contradictory and text messages showed a friendly relationship with the accused even after the alleged acts.
