Harvey Weinstein Begs Judge To Stop Prison Dentist From Pulling Teeth

At a glance

  • Prisoner Harvey Weinstein’s rotten molars have become a dental “emergency” which he’s asking to get fixed by a private dentist — because prison medics will just pull them out and leave gaping holes in his mouth.
  • “This situation is an emergency,” the former film producer pleaded with a judge after being wheeled into a Los Angeles courtroom Wednesday. “I will pay for the dentist … it will be one trip and one trip only.”
  • LA Superior Court Judge Lisa Lench noted Weinstein had visited the medical bay at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility — where he’s locked up pending an Oct. 10 trial on charges he sexually assaulted five women between 2004 and 2013 — twice, but has not resolved his issues.
