Harvey Weinstein accused of smuggling MILK DUDS into prison as his attorney calls it a ‘simple misunderstanding’


Harvey Weinstein has apologized after he was caught with a box of Milk Duds at a Los Angeles jail facility, against the rules of the jail.

‘This was an innocent misunderstanding,’ Weinstein, 69, told TMZ in a statement Thursday via his rep Juda Engelmayer. ‘It will not happen again. I have been a model inmate, following the rules and regulations and I am sincerely sorry.’

The disgraced film producer told authorities that he had taken the candy with him the previous July during his extradition from New York to Los Angeles, while authorities suspect he might have been provided with the Milk Duds by a member of his legal team.

Mark Werksman, a lawyer for Weinstein, said that no punitive actions were taken against Weinstein by officials with the court or jail.

His lead lawyers Werksman and Alan Jackson told Variety: ‘We have been informed about this and are very sorry it happened. It had not happened before, and never happened since. Harvey has been a model inmate and intends to continue as such.’

Weinstein remains in custody at the Twin Towers jail facility in downtown Los Angeles, where he is in the facility’s Correctional Treatment Center medical unit.
