Harvey Weinstein Found Guilty of Rape and Sexual Assault

On Monday, February 24, film producer Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of raping a woman and the sexual assault of another woman and has been jailed.

Aspiring actor Jessica Mann said Weinstein raped her in 2013 and a former production assistant of his, Miriam Haley, said Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in 2006. Testimony from “The Sopranos” actress Annabella Sciorra that Weinstein raped her in the ’90s was also used in the case.

A jury of seven men and five women deliberated for five days after hearing testimonies from six women during the six-week trial and decided to find him guilty of two charges: criminal sexual act in the first-degree and third-degree rape, but acquitting him two counts of predatory sexual assault that carried a potential life sentence.

Weinstein is slated to be sentenced on March 11.
