Harvey Weinstein was arraigned in NY on Monday, where he pleaded not guilty to his latest sexual assault charges.

The 66-year-old was brought into NY state Supreme Court wearing handcuffs, but he was uncuffed during proceedings. He appeared to have lost weight.

In all, Weinstein now faces six felony charges relating to three women: two counts of predatory sexual assault, two counts of criminal sexual act in the first degree, and one count each of first-degree rape and third-degree rape. He then encouraged other survivors to speak out.

Prosecutors argued that Weinstein should be placed under house arrest and moved to Manhattan.

Weinstein is now free on $1 million bail.

Lawyer Benjamin Brafman told reporters Monday that the disgraced movie mogul has been hard at work since being indicted on rape and predatory sexual assault charges related to separate incidents with three women.

Weinstein previously forfeited his passport and is fitted with an electronic monitoring bracelet.

The next hearing has been scheduled for September 20.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said the 66-year-old is charged with "some of the most serious sexual offences" that exist under state law.

"Mr. Weinstein maintains that all of these allegations are false and he expects to be fully vindicated", Brafman said earlier this month.

"Are you really willing to have your client face the jury?"

Weinstein has steadfastly denied all accusations of nonconsensual sex.

Mr. Brafman added: "We anticipate based on what prosecutors have said that there may be more charges".

More than 75 women have accused Mr Weinstein, who was one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, of wrongdoing as allegations detailed in Pulitzer Prize-winning stories last October in The New York Times and The New Yorker magazine swelled into the #MeToo movement.

Brafman said Weinstein was "still trying to make a living" and seeing doctors, but declined to detail his medical issues, saying only that he was "doing as well as someone can be expected".
