Weinstein Sentenced to 23 Years for Rape, Criminal Sex Acts

With any luck, he’ll die in prison after being repeatedly raped.

Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years behind bars on Wednesday, just weeks after he was found guilty of third-degree rape and criminal sex act.

Weinstein, 67, faced a minimum of five years and a maximum of 25 years in prison for the criminal sex act count, while the third-degree rape count carried a maximum penalty of four years.

He addressed the court before Judge James Burke handed down his sentence, saying men facing allegations in the #MeToo movement are being accused of “things that none of us understood,” and that he was confused by the rape case that was about to put him in prison.

“Thousands of men are losing due process. I’m worried about this country,” he said.

The disgraced movie mogul was reportedly led into the courtroom in a wheelchair. Once settled, he heard from the two women whose allegations ultimately got him convicted, Jessica Mann and Mimi Haleyi, before the judge revealed his fate.

Sciorra’s account that he raped and sexually assaulted her in the mid-1990s was the basis for two counts of predatory sexual assault, a charge that carried a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Mann, an aspiring actress, said he raped her in March 2013, while Haleyi, a former film and TV production assistant, said he forcibly performed oral sex on her in March 2006. Both women addressed the court before Weinstein spoke and his sentence was handed down.

……Weinstein will be transferred from the city’s jail system to the state prison system, where he will undergo a thorough evaluation, including a comprehensive medical review, to determine which facility is best for his physical and security needs.

 

That’s bullshit. He should be placed in the general prison population

He must later appear before a judge in California, where he was charged in January with forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual penetration by use of force and sexual battery by restraint.

……The charges are connected to two separate instances that occurred over the course of as many days in 2013, according to a press release by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.

On Feb. 18 of that year, he is accused of forcing himself into an unidentified female victim’s hotel room and raping her. The next day, he allegedly sexually assaulted a different woman in a Beverly Hills hotel room.

 

Harvey Weinstein’s record of sexual assaults has been a known fact in Hollywood for years, yet it was never broadcast until now.  There’s more Weinsteins in Hollywood. He’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The crimes of sexual predators in Hollywood, the media and Congress, are disturbing and all too frequent.
