Harvey Weinstein Sentenced To 23 Years In Prison For Rape & Sexual Assault

Published: Wednesday 11th Mar 2020 by Rashad

In what comes as a landmark victory for the #MeToo movement’s supporters and survivors, embattled Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison Wednesday (March 11).

Details inside:

Report:

“Harvey Weinstein, who was convicted of rape in a #MeToo trial, was sentenced to 23 years in prison Wednesday after the once-powerful Hollywood mogul remained defiant during sentencing. Weinstein, a once-celebrated Hollywood producer, said ahead of his sentencing that he was worried about the movement’s implication for men and due process.

 A jury convicted Weinstein last month of third-degree rape of Jessica Mann, a former aspiring actress, and a count of criminal sexual act in the first degree against Mimi Haley, a former “Project Runway” production assistant.
Weinstein, 67, faced a minimum of five years in prison and a maximum of 25 years on the criminal sexual act count. The third-degree rape count carried a maximum penalty of four years behind bars. Judges often run sentences concurrently, which means a defendant can serve out both sentences at the same time. The former film industry titan has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex and pleaded not guilty in the New York case. His lawyers have said they will appeal the conviction.”

*****

It should also be noted he faces a sex crimes case in Los Angeles, where he was charged with “raping one woman and sexually assaulting another in separate incidents on two consecutive days in 2013.” As of time reported, he has yet to enter a plea in that case.
