Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein Tuesday pleaded not guilty to rape and criminal sex act charges in a New York City courtroom, according to ABC News.

Weinstein, 66, wearing dark jeans, a blazer and white shirt, answered "not guilty" in a soft voice when asked how he pleaded to the indictment by a Manhattan grand jury last week.

Weinstein was accompanied by defense attorney Benjamin Brafman and was surrounded by court officers during the brief hearing in Manhattan Supreme Court and answered a series of questions from the judge.

“He intends to vigorously defend this case,” Brafman said.
