Harvey Weinstein expected to appear in court today — just days after being transferred to Rikers Island

Disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein will appear in a New York City courtroom Thursday – just days after he was transferred again to Rikers Island from a soft non-public room at Bellevue Hospital.

Weinstein, 72, is expected for a procedural listening to over a writ of extradition filed by California in the wake of the New York State Court of Appeals’ bombshell resolution to overturn his felony intercourse crime conviction.

“Being that he’s no longer a convicted felon in New York, California is obligated to request his presence to begin serving his 16-year sentence there,” spokesperson Juda Engelmeyer advised The Post.

“As he’s not technically a criminal in New York, he’s technically a fugitive of California justice. It’s Gavin Newsome’s way of showing his electorate that he’s ‘doing something’ about Harvey,” Engelmeyer defined.
