New York, Aug 22 Harvey Weinstein is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on a new indictment as prosecutors seek to have jurors hear from an actress who has accused him of a 1993 rape.

Court officials say the disgraced movie mogul is due in court the same day an appeals court is expected to rule on his lawyers'' motion to move his trial out of New York City.

Prosecutors have said the new indictment won''t result in additional charges and shouldn''t delay Weinstein''s September 9 trial.

Prosecutors say having "The Sopranos" actress Anabella Sciorra testify will solve a problem the judge found in one of the charges.

The judge is allowing other accusers who aren''t involved in the criminal case to testify, as prosecutors look to show a pattern of misconduct.
