NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Harvey Weinstein will be arraigned Monday on a new indictment in his sex assault case -- just three weeks before his trial is set to begin.

The disgraced movie mogul was indicted on revised charges meant to fix a technical problem with the existing indictment.

It does not add additional charges, nor does it delay the Sept. 9 trial.

The case was re-presented to a grand jury to allow “Sopranos” actress Annabella Sciorra to testify against the 67-year-old producer.

Sciorra's testimony could bolster two counts of predatory sexual assault Weinstein faces, serious charges that carry a maximum life sentence.

Sciorra claims Weinstein raped her inside her Manhattan apartment after she starred in a movie he produced in 1993.
