Movie mogul-turned-convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein pleaded not guilty to more sex-crime charges in Los Angeles Wednesday, the morning after he was transferred to California , bringing an end to his effort to avoid or delay extradition.

Weinstein, 69, faces 11 felony counts of sexual assault, including forcible rape, against five women in encounters predominantly at Beverly Hills and Los Angeles hotels dating back to 2004.

Sheriff’s deputies brought Weinstein into court in a wheelchair, according to the Associated Press. He was wearing a brown jail jumpsuit and a face mask. His Los Angeles attorney, Mark Werksman, entered the plea for him.

Weinstein spoke only to say “thank you” to Judge Sergio Tapia, who wished him good luck as the hearing ended.

Weinstein, who was pictured arriving in Burbank on a small plane Tuesday afternoon, was booked into the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles maintained by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.


He is being held on $5 million bail, according to his booking sheet.
