Former movie producer Harvey Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to rape and criminal sexual act charges.

Weinstein entered his plea in New York Supreme Court on Tuesday. 

Weinstein turned himself in to police in New York on May 25.

He was arrested, processed and charged with rape, committing a criminal sex act, sex abuse and sexual misconduct. Those charges stem from incidents involving two women.

He agreed to post $1 million bail in cash, wear an electronic monitoring device and not travel outside of New York and Connecticut.

Last week, a grand jury indicted him on rape and criminal sexual act charges.

Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault or rape. He has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex against him.
