NextImg:Harvey Weinstein reportedly flies first class to NYC on taxpayer’s dime

Harvey Weinstein flew first class from Los Angeles to New York City this week — and taxpayers covering the cost of the disgraced film producer’s trip.

Weinstein flew on a commercial airline Wednesday, seated in a first class cabin with investigators and medical personnel, with the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office picking up the tab for the flight, according to TMZ.

“[Weinstein] was returned to New York via a method we typically use pursuant to our extradition agreement with New York,” a spokesman for the LA County DA told the celebrity news outlet.

Weinstein, who is already serving a 23-year prison sentence in New York, was sentenced in Los Angeles in February to an additional 16 years in prison on charges of rape and sexual assault.

Weinstein has been re-assigned to the Mohawk Correctional Facility in Oneida County, NY to continue serving his sentence, according to the state’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

He was originally at the Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison, near Buffalo, but following a review of his medical needs, the state chose to house him elsewhere, the outlet reported.

Mohawk is a medium security prison that offers “sex offender treatment programs,” according to its website. Weinstein’s attorneys have said that he suffers from cardiac issues, diabetes and eye problems.
