A judge is dismissing one count of Harvey Weinstein’s six-count indictment.
It involves Lucia Evans, one of three women who’ve accused the disgraced movie mogul of sex assault.
Weinstein’s lawyer, Ben Brafman, convinced a Manhattan judge the aspiring actress lied about being forced to have oral sex in 2004, pointing to a friendly email suggesting the sex was consensual. Other charges still stand, including allegations that Weinstein forced a 2006 sex act on a different woman and raped a woman in 2013. Weinstein is due back in court on December 20th.

There are also allegations that an NYPD detective may have improperly coached a witness with her grand jury testimony.
