Harvey Weinstein is asking for a new trial, and he wants his conviction of rape and sexual assault to be thrown out.

His team says the judge presiding over the case made several errors, which denied him an impartial jury.

Last year, the former Hollywood producer was sentenced to 23 years in prison.
