The panel of seven men and five women had lots of questions Tuesday as they started weighing charges in the closely watched #MeToo case.

Weinstein, 67, is charged with raping a woman in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on another woman, TV and film production assistant Mimi Haleyi, in 2006.

Weinstein’s lawyers contend the acts were consensual.
