A New York prosecutor says Harvey Weinstein has violated his bail conditions by mishandling his electronic ankle monitor, sometimes going unaccounted for hours at a time.

Prosecutor Joan Illuzzi spoke Friday at a pretrial hearing for Weinstein, who is free on $1 million bail.

Prosecutors accuse him of leaving home a piece of the monitoring technology that keeps the ankle bracelet activated.

Defense attorney Donna Rotunno denied it was deliberate. She blamed “technical glitches” like dead batteries.

A judge deferred any decision on the matter until next week. Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to charges of rape and sexual assault.
