Prosecutors plan to retry a suspect on the most serious charges in the theft of Kirsten Dunst’s $2,000 purse during a Manhattan movie shoot. But it’s not clear whether the “Spider-Man” star will play a role.
A judge Friday set a Dec. 3 date for the retrial of mechanic James Jimenez. He has said a co-defendant duped him into participating unwittingly in the August 2007 heist at the SoHo Grand Hotel.
Jimenez was convicted Oct. 2 of a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge. But jurors were deadlocked on some felony burglary counts.
Prosecutors aren’t saying whether Dunst and “How to Lose Friends&Alienate People” co-star Simon Pegg will be called to testify again. Both did during the first trial.
