The disgraced producer claims he’s afraid of catching COVID-19.
Weinstein wants the mercy he didn’t show his victims.
Harvey Weinstein is scared. The disgraced Hollywood film producer and convicted rapist doesn’t want to get extradited to Los Angeles – not because he’s afraid of facing the music, but because he’s fearful of contracting COVID-19 in the prison system.

The only question is whether he’ll do so in upstate New York or in Los Angeles.
As TMZ first reported, Weinstein’s attorney is doing everything in his power to make sure it’s in the former and not the latter:
Weinstein’s lawyer, Norman Effman, tells TMZ … he’s gonna fight the move. Effman says his client’s health would be at serious risk if he’s transferred to L.A. — where coronavirus cases have been surging — especially the county’s jail system which has been plagued by COVID-19 outbreaks.
