Harvey Weinstein has given a new interview in which the accused rapist and sexual predator addresses his impending trial and shares his plans for the future if he’s found not guilty.

Weinstein wrote via email to CNN that “The past two years have been grueling and have presented him with a great opportunity for self-reflection.” .

About his plans should he be found not guilty, Weinstein, who underwent back surgery last month, wrote that he plans to focus on his children, health, and rest. He also implied, however, that he may try to regain a career in the film industry.

Weinstein declined to respond to whether he felt empathy for his accusers, writing that he is following the advice of his lawyers “to not offer any commentary on this.”

He held firm that he is innocent of all charges, writing that “the public’s biggest misconceptions come from the assumptions that have been made through the help of media.”
