Jurors are continuing to focus a lot of attention on actress Annabella Sciorra’s linchpin allegations that the once-heralded Hollywood mogul raped and sexually assaulted her in the mid-1990s.

On Thursday, the jurors eyed emails that Weinstein sent regarding Sciorra, including ones to the private Israeli spy agency he allegedly enlisted to dig up dirt on would-be accusers.

Sciorra's allegations are a key component of the most serious charges that jurors are weighing in the closely watched #MeToo trial.

Weinstein maintains that any sexual contact was consensual. Jury deliberations are set to resume Friday.
